~sunset...skywatch friday~

sunset on the beach

I watched from my covered balcony as it sprinkled rain throughout the afternoon.

When I saw the vacationers start to slowly wander out, I knew the rain was over.

First we saw the rainbow.

rainbow Little did we know it was only a glimpse of the beauty to come.

How amazing, you and I did the SAME post today!! Of course your sky is very different from mine, and SO amazingly orange, it is awesome!! I don't think I've ever seen a sky that color, we usually get pink here. You must have had your camera nearby, rainbows do not linbger for long. What a wonderful post!!

There is something about riding out the oceanic storm and watching the transformation of the sky as the front moves away. It is always stunning, the gray and rain long forgotten when the aftermath is just so beautiful...

the quote about worked with God is so true. I feel that way everytime i take a photo of God's creation. the last photo is beautiful, I love the shadow effect. i love beaches above all nature and the woods next. these are wonderful examples of God's Work.
