Storm Over Ringing Hill

For a period of about 40 minutes one evening last week, I watched in utter astonshiment as this amazing light slowly developed as a thunderstorm moved in and then cleared out. The sun was peaking through the clouds from the west while the thunderstorm was raging and then began to clear out to the east. Behind the storm were nice, cool temperatures and lower humidity. By the time I got home, a double rainbow greeted me over the orchard just up the road from my home. I could see nearly the entire rainbow. As pretty as it was, I found these storm clouds with only a hint of the remaining rainbows and that amazing light just a bit more interesting. Hopefully, you will, too.
