Watercolor in the sky

Saturday, June 27, 2009

It's tough to define what beauty is but everyone knows exactly what it is when he/she sees it!

It was a hot summer day (finally!)
and then at around 6pm rain and lightning had a ball!






And then an hour later, the rain and lightning stopped ...

The whole neighborhood turned purplish!

So I stopped packing and honey grabbed the camera...


It's like SOMEONE up there is playing with water colors!




We all rushed outside and took a quick walk to enjoy the Picasso-like masterpiece in the sky.

It felt like we were in the twilight zone
but it was the most gorgeous sunset we've ever witnessed :)
A miracle, a blessing...worth pausing for!
