Last night after enjoying Uncle Alan's cake, it started to rain a bit. With a thin but intense line of thunderstorms approaching, the dusk light turned the sort of semi-surreal greenish that might otherwise suggest a tornado, but it was apparent that it was merely from the odd circumstances of dusk + clear weather + aproaching storm.

In any case, the 8:30pm light was limited but gorgeous.

With the lack of light I didn't expect much in the way of sharpness from my hand-held 125mm Voigtländer attempts, but I had high hopes for the color, and was not disappointed.

One comment so far...

While the color is fine in all the photos, that drop exploding beside the Chickadee is wonderful.
