After a sick, lousy day on the couch the rain finally let up and the sun began to show its true colors. Heading back home after sunset, I was satisfied with my captures for the evening and had set my camera in the passenger seat where it often sits for easy access. I noticed a car turn into an inlet that looked to run along the backside of the lake, naturally I followed. What I saw made me gasp. The view was beautiful!! There are homes going up so I realize I only have a short time to enjoy this. The above was the first photo I captured.
A change in the weather. Some gnarly clouds rolled through tonight. Thunderstorms remind me of so much. I love the smell of rain, the roll of thunder, the surprise of lightning, the ominous look the clouds hold and the breathe taking sky it creates after the madness. It is all simply so easing and beautiful.
Every year deadly storms rip through small towns or big cities. Lives are randomly chosen and lost. For those, we remember.

I’m sure these two gentlemen thought I was either DNR or an absolute nut case. I was sitting on the banks alone taking photos of the sun melting into the water. I was waiting for the shot. I know it was coming as they slowly trolled across the water. Finally there it was right before me. The beautiful silhouette of them in their fishing boat. The cloud line that lingered above. The melting sun in the back.
When you get something or someone so great consider it a perfect catch. Hold onto it.

Thank you to Dr. Aaron and his staff for helping with my puppy today.
