Sunset after April storm

A cold front rolled through the area today bringing spring storms with high winds, heavy rain, and dangerous lightning. Besides the cooler temps, the weather system created a drab cloudy day.

The odds of seeing a sunset on days like today are slim to none.

Clouds opening up

As the day was ending, the clouds opened up near the horizon.

The sunset on the gulf

The opening in the clouds was painted in several shades of orange. The sun looked like a big ball of fire slowly dropping below the horizon.

After the sunset on the gulf

After the sun disappeared, the orange faded as darkness overtook the sky.

And the day came to an end with a rare glimpse of a beautiful sunset.
