Sunsets here are regularly as spectacular as sunrises over Lake Michigan.  Tonight I went on a Wal-Mart snack run (yes, that's right...I actually drove over 30 miles to Bottineau in order to get munchies...and from Wal-Mart no less! What is my world coming to?!)  Anyway, it turned out to be a beautiful drive.  The setting sun bloomed through smokey air and well placed clouds, and I could not resist pulling off to the side of the road to capture the scene...

A couple weeks ago I was out after the evening activity chasing down missing band folders.  Normally this is nothing but a hassle, but that evening a storm was rolling in and the sunset-lit clouds were incredible...

The colors seemed right out of a Maxfield Parrish painting, and lightning strikes illuminating their shadowed underbellies added to the dramatic effect.
