To Capture a Sunset

No, I didn't get any hail over here this morning, just plenty of rain. It's been a rather gloomy and dark day today, not the kind of weekend I had planned. With my new car, I wanted to do a few things this weekend without the worry of inclement weather. The last thing I want to do now is drive in the rain and track in mud and such. No thanks! But after all the rain and ugliness had passed, beauty appeared. Not only was the sunset oh so pretty, the most amazing rainbow stood silently across from the sunset almost smiling back at it. The pictures I took don't do either the sunset or the magnificent rainbow justice. Unfortunately, I was not able to fit this rainbow into the same shot; I had to take two pictures to capture the whole thing (actually, I still don't think I got it all). I just thought I'd go ahead and share this with you guys.

Here are two pictures I took of the rainbow. Like I said,
these photos are super lame compared to the real deal.
This is "phase 2" of the sunset.
"Phase 3"- the last picture I took before those brilliant
colors faded into the darkness
