A few weeks ago, I went out, hoping to catch a pretty sunset.
The sunset was pretty, but it gave me some extras. I was not prepared to have a thunderstorms it was still early in the season. But the thunder could be heard, first in the distant and then became louder, as the lightning flashed across the sky. There was some rain, but not a lot.
As the sun was setting the western sky turned orange, but those dark clouds were filling the sky.
There was a fair bit of drama in the sky that evening.
You can see the rain, highlighted by the setting sun.
When I turned and looked towards the east, I saw a beautiful rainbow.
Back to the southwest, was one large cloud that caught the light of the setting sun.It was spectacular.
When I thought it was time to go home, I had to pull off the road and try my hand at capturing the lightning. I am not an expert at this and would consider this a lucky shot. Whatever the case is I'll take it. Hopefully that during the course of this summer I get to try for more shots like this.
God's Word speaks of lightning and storms in Jeremiah 51:16
When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
