This was taken about 2 p.m., from my deck. That was after we'd driven home from town, through a variety of conditions including high winds (trees across roads); rain (almost horizontal); slushy sleet; and then brilliant hot sunshine with a magnificent rainbow.
That dark band across the lake by the point? That would be rain coming in again... but that little line of silver in the background? That is more sunshine, also headed our way.
It almost looks like moonlight, but it isn't. It's a lull, that rarely photographed moment between two rainshowers...
And it's beautiful. It also illustrates one of life's little lessons... the sun is still out there, still shining, and it's coming your way, so just hang on!
That's something we sometimes forget as we roll into November, the month that is synonomous with gray weather. There's all kinds of beauty out there, and bad weather always looks worse through a window!
