Golden Sunset

Due to thunderstorms at sunset on Saturday, we got this strange glow. The dots/circles are the flash reflecting off of the raindrops. These photos are completely unedited.






Sky Watch is the brainchild of Tom Wigley.

That's a heavy orange.

Wow! Here in Michigan, at least in the primaries, if you vote Democrat, your votes don't count.

I guess I'll have to make up for that, and once again, vote for your pic. I'm on it!

Middle Ditch said...

Wow, Lana, those pictures are out of this world! Gorgeous!

Michelle (artscapes) said...

Holy cow!! Those pictures are amazing....

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm glad they came out so well. That was really an amazing sky.

Steve Malley said...

Louisiana sure does get some sky, don't it? Glad they got you there to catch it!

And I'm voting for you regular-like...

Travis Erwin said...

That is a gorgeous sky and I've been voting nearly every day.

Lana Gramlich said...

lending, middle ditch, michelle; Thank you! I've never seen the like, myself!

jr; *LOL* I appreciate it!

charles; I'm glad you were here to share it with. :)

steve; That's for sure (some kind of sky)! I've so often been happily amazed by the skies here. Just lovely! Thanks for the votes!

travis; Has anyone told you today that you rock? ;) Thanks much!

Something new under the sun. I've never seen a sun set on a landscape like that.


Not entirely clear on the contest, but you most certainly get my vote.

ribeezie said...

I just had to say that these are some amazing photos!...

YogaforCynics said...

Great photos.
(really...talking about visual arts isn't really my forte...I find it difficult to say much more than "whoah...cool colors...." but I mean it.)

Kelly said...

wow. beautiful. I could hang that on a wall! :D

Travis said...

Wow...that looks like the glow of a really big fire!

Ello said...

Holy Moly! Simply breathtaking, Lana!

Lana Gramlich said...

ivan, ribeezie, kelly & ello; Thank you!

yogaforcynics; It's all good! I appreciate it. ;)

travis; I know! It almost made me wonder if we should look for a tornado or something (as such things are often preceeded by oddly-colored skies!)

Navin said...

These photos are awesome but, I don't agree that these aren't edited.

These photos are edited and all digicam imprints are removed as it happens when photo is edited.

Marvin said...

Beautiful golden sky. It's that blackish green skies that send me down to the basement where I hide under my workbench.

Lana Gramlich said...

navin; Whatever. I have a witness who can corroborate that these photos haven't been altered, that they accurately portray the sky that evening.

marvin; Yes, Charles has told me about those skies. I hope never to see them!

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

VERY COOL PHOTOS, Lana!!! That must have been eerie.

Hugs, JJ

Dave Coulter said...

Amazing colors. Great work!

Lana Gramlich said...

jj; Blogger ate my comment, but I'd said that yes, it was very surreal!

dave; Thank you. :)

Lynda Lehmann said...

OOOOO, Lana, they're all so very beautiful! Wish I'd been there to see that glow!

Every storm has a silver lining, right? :)

Lana Gramlich said...

lynda; Exactly right. ;) I should have taken a bunch of photos to stitch together. This effect over most of the sky was most impressive!
