Sunset Sunday

These photos are from June 4: my birthday. Motor Man and I went out to dinner, and when we returned home, we knew a storm was brewing. I didn’t think there was any chance of sunset pictures.

But Motor Man happened to glance out the window, and told me I should probably get the camera. I took this from our garage door, not wanting to take a chance on missing the shot.

I rarely even poke my nose outside during a storm, but this sunset was too pretty to miss.

Bride and Groom swans weren’t afraid of the storm. Guess they were enjoying the rain.

It was quite a juggling act, protecting the camera while taking pictures.

No, the storm wasn’t all that close, or I wouldn’t have braved it.

Even for a sunset.

  1. These are so beautiful – glad you managed to brave the storm to get them! Can you imagine being a stormchaser? I have a friend who is one – photographs storms, tornadoes, lightning…yikes!

  2. Lovely…..couldn’t tell there was rain coming down – just some clouds available for the sun to “play off” as it slowly set…..lovely reflections! Bride and Groom swan probably enjoyed the refreshing shower (and were hoping for a rain-soaked bread delivery!!).
