Sunset During Thunderstorm May 27th

On the 27th of May, we had a thunderstorm roll through and by us right at sunset…made for some interesting images…

…and then a rainbow formed behind me….

…the colors just kept intensifying as it became darker and then after all that, I captured a lightning bolt without even knowing it til later during the editing…

Thunderstorm in St Louis County

I took my break at work the evening of May 22nd to go get something to eat and spotted a thunderstorm approaching Maplewood from the southwest, so I stopped to photograph it on Sunnen Drive….

..it was pretty on its approach, but soon turned dark and foreboding, and then when it arrived it unleashed a little bit of wind and whole lot of rain.
