Storms and Colors

This past week we have had a lot of storms.  First it was hurricane Irene, then the remnants of tropical storm Lee.  Either way, we have had rain most of this week.

Earlier in the week, we had a break in the clouds right around sunset.  The sun was coming through the clouds and casting a very warm yellowish orange tone on everything.  All the boys saw it and commented on how different it looked outside.  Grabbing my camera, I headed outside and captured this photo.

You can see the storm clouds still there in the upper left corner.  This photo is straight out of my camera with no post processing.  Only a standard UV filter was used, which I keep on my lens for protection more than anything.  It is cheaper to replace a broken filter than a broken glass on a lens.

Every now and then we get the priviledge to capture the awesomeness of God's creation.

  1. What a gorgeous photo!! Sometimes the "calm before the storm" makes the best photography. And views like that make living on the homestead totally worthwhile!

    Also, I wanted to let you know, I am bestowing an award on you. When you have a chance, stop by!
