It was a “weathery” day today … I heard it thunder and rain a bit while I was in the office (and then it was gross and hot while I was running some errands). Thankfully the day ended beautifully … I saw a gorgeous light coming in through the window and stuck my head out, saw a rainbow and put the camera on the tripod as quickly as I could. I got the very tail end of it. And then, a few hours later when the sun was setting I got another photo of the alpenglow doing it’s thing over the mountain from the evening’s sunset. I love this view. :)
