I had two favorite images from the second outing on August 7th and as a band of thunderstorms approached town. The first shot I shared became a quick favorite of mine and yours to take first place in the voting to represent August in the 2023 Marblehead Calendar.

This shot was captured just a few minutes later and, while not as impressive with the golden light of sunset, has a really cool hint of blue light in the top of the frame. I’m guessing lighting was firing above the cloud to give off that blue light and I made a hasty retreat immediately after taking this shot as the radar showed the storm approaching faster than I had anticipated.

Between the strong yellow glow to the right and that hint of blue at the top, I find my eyes wandering around the frame of this shot.
