On Saturday, the picture we were supposed to capture for our 30 day June challenge was a sunrise or sunset. Well, I did not make it up in time for the sunrise, so that left the sunset. Clouds filled the sky in the later evening, and I was afraid I was going to miss my sunset as well. I went out anyway in hopes of getting a sunset. Boy, did I get a sunset, and other surprises as well.

|A promise from God...|
|There was actually a double rainbow, but it did not capture well.|
I wanted to take some lightning pictures, but not out in the open. Warren and I had spent some of the afternoon scouting out possible places where I could photograph lightning without getting wet, or standing in the open. I thought we had found the perfect spot, at a building that had a carport covering the back of it, and it was in an area that did not have trees, or buildings blocking the view. After my sunset pictures, I drove to the spot to take lightning shots. Unfortunately, my perfect spot was lit up like a Christmas tree. It had a ton of security lights on, which ruined my plan. Oh well. Back to scouting out potential spots.
