We were painting outside on Thursday evening, being careful to listen for thunder. I was captivated by this large cloud that sprang up in front of the sun, and the way the light sparkled off the edges of the cloud, contrasting with the dense, dark, shifting mass.

I was sitting on a dock over the water, so I managed to stay somewhat comfortable, even though the evening was warm and muggy.  We didn’t get any rain or thunder from this cloud, but I suspect that somebody else did!
