A 360 Degree Sunset!

13 Jun

The other evening we had a bit of a storm. Lots of clouds, thunder, and lightning; just enough rain to make it uncomfortably muggy.

When it came time for the sun to set, though, the sky lit up! There was almost a halo of clouds around the horizon and they all picked up the colors. It was incredible!

So, being the budding shutterbug that I am, I grabbed my phone (it gets better shots than our digital) and rushed out to the backyard.

Here are some of the photos.

Yeah, this ball of mud we call home is pretty amazing. πŸ™‚

    WOW! When I saw the one on Twitter, I thought you might have found some touched-up internet pic and thought it was pretty enough to share. Those are amazing! The colors are breathtaking.

            You are most welcome. πŸ™‚ For both. *does a little happy dance*
            Is it strange that the only friends I have outside family and my Bible Study are online???
            Either way, I count you as a friend. πŸ˜€

      Thanks! πŸ˜€
      I caught sight of the sunset starting and just HAD to get out there. Really glad I did. πŸ™‚
      Would have just stayed outside basking in the beauty, but the mosquitoes sounded the charge and I chose to retreat rather than itch all over for a week. lol

        So the mosquitoes are bad all over this year. I say we humans declare war.

          War. OK. Just let me make a new sling-shot. *runs home to make her husband teach her how to make one* Lonnie will help me! ‘Cause he’s cool like that. πŸ˜€
