Sanibel Rainbow and Sunset

The high temperature today was 89. This evening we had another shower of rain. After the rain stopped, I thought there might be a pretty sunset and drove out to one of the causeway islands to enjoy it.

There was a big rainbow on one side of the causeway and it seemed as though hundreds of colors merged with the sun and clouds to create a perfect sunset, on the other side. This will no doubt be one of my favorites. I know.....that's what I say almost everytime there are clouds involved. :-) I hope you never get tired of looking at them; I know I won't.

I love a cloudy sunset as well. They add so much color and texture. Great pics, Tootie!

AWESOME storm pictures! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love Sanibel Island, and if I could live there I would! Now that my mom is in Ft. Myers, I hope to get there at least 2 times a year! Lots of watercolor journaling will be going on!
