Red Sky In The Morning…

Sailors take warning. Or as my Dad used to say, “Red sky in the morning, Sarah take warning. Red sky at night, Sarah’s delight.”

I wandered into the kitchen early this morning while getting ready for work and noticed something odd about the yard. It looked as if someone was shining a bright red flood light all over the deck and the yard. As I got closer to the back door I realized the vivid red color was coming from the sky. I had never seen anything like it in my life. I walked out onto the deck in a shocked stupor, staring up at the silent lighting arcing through the blood red sky. There was no sound. No birds, no thunder, no breeze rustling the leaves. Nothing.

When I snapped out of my shock I realized what a rare opportunity this was and I ran into the house and grabbed my camera and my tripod. This is what I caught. I haven’t done anything here other than clean up the noise/grain a bit and brighten the tree line a shade.

Within 5 minutes of taking this picture the whole sky turned black and thick sheets of rain obscured the tree line from view.
