Sunsets before Rainstorms

Sunsets before Rainstorms

As I came in to work early today, I got to leave early as well. Often times on my drive home I get to watch the sunset, but rarely have enough time to make it home and hop on my bike to make it down to the beach to snap some shots. I guess I was a little lucky, as today’s sunset was more impressive than normal due to the rainstorm that’s rolling in.

I actually ended up snapping 159 photos of the sunset and 1 of some random building I thought looked cool (though turned out to be not as cool in the picture, which is why there was only one shot taken).

Even though I took a lot of shots, many were just me screwing around. I did a couple different series in continuous shoot mode, one turned out pretty cool. I’ll update this post with that if I can figure out how to animate it (for free) in an easy manner. I also realize the alignment of the upcoming photos are a bit messed up, but I haven’t quite fixed this yet.

This was one of the first photos I took. As I’m sure you can see from the colors, I’m glad I made it down there to snap a few shots.

A helicopter was flying by and looked kinda cool in the clouds.
