Port Richey sunset…

The race was on. My friend reported that the thunderstorm that had just pummeled his neighborhood was heading to my neighborhood. But from the look of things at that moment I thought it was worth the couple of minutes it would take me to get to the pond in my park andwatch. I thought maybe the clouds would light up for a few minutes, but the whole scene grayed over and I headed back to my house. And then the sky did show some pink so I turned the car around and went back. Those thunderstorms did arrive eventually, but I’m happy they held off as long as they did.

To get the head-in view of the color and reflections I have to walk along the water into someone’s backyard. But that house is shuttered up for the summer, so no one home to get annoyed with me there.
Happily the clouds that were coming in reflected the color of the sunset.
The wind was picking up and I began to feel some raindrops, so it was time to head home shortly after I took this picture.
