After the storm

The storm passed and we went about our business.  We had dinner, cleaned up, and then I settled down to work on my blog.  After a long day, Mike was laying in bed watching TV when all of a sudden he called to me to bring my camera.  The view of the sky from the deck was breathtaking.  There were still residual clouds in the sky from the storm, and the sun setting behind them was creating stunning visual effects.  Every time I thought I had captured it, Mike would call me back again because the colours continued to change every few minutes, and sometimes it looked like the trees were on fire.  We watched it progress from golds and oranges to pinks and purples and marvelled at the beauty of nature.

    Sometimes the loony bin looks like a world of enchantment, and your photos and your reasons for taking them are achingly profound. I am getting poetic over these beauties! 🙂

    Wowzas! That’s so pretty! Awesome pics.

    • Aww, thanks Becky!! You would love it on my back deck where I took these pictures. Not only is it up farily high so the view is good, but it’s also an awesome place to sit and read and listen to the sounds of nature. Nothing in my house gets done in the summer because I am always out there reading!! 🙂

    Great photos and how cute of Mike to make sure you didn’t miss out on seeing it and taking photos. He really is a keeper.

    • Thanks TBM, and yes he is a keeper, especially since he’s an awesome cook!!!! He loves to cook while I resent it because it takes so much time away from my reading, photography, and blogging!! LOL
