Sailor's delight? Not too many sailors out here on the plains but just after sunset as a thunderstorm was moving past my house I took these pics. But, I was in such a hurry to get the pictures while the effect was there I grabbed my wife's camera. It was still raining, and dark and I was not real sure some of the lightening in the area was gone, so I couldn't get her flash turned off. It made for some interesting affects with the raindrops and trees in the yard.

Then, a couple of minutes later the red had settled in to kind of a purple and I took this picture of what the sidewalk and road looked like reflecting it.

Zero editing by the way. Straight out of the camera.

Interesting effects, indeed! Those white reflections off the raindrops remind me of fireflies. I'll have to try that sometime.

Straight-from-the-camera great shots!

Sunday after a thunderstorm rolls through just after sundown the sky is red (above). The next day, Monday, same thing, and the sky turns gold. Same street, same sun, two storms, same time, totally different hue.

Funny how that works.
