|In this photo taken by the Mount Washington Observatory|
an isolated thunderstorm is seen at sunset over northwestern Vermont
The storm did nothing to erase the humidity, but I appreciated the rain. It was getting dry, and watering the gardens has been getting tedious. This gives me a lucky break. Luckier than most of Vermont, because I live in one of the few towns that got any rain.
The storm was visually beautiful and I went outside afterward as the setting sun lit up the storm. I took a few photos of it.
Unbeknownst to me, at the Mount Washington Observatory at the top of New England's highest peak in New Hampshire, somebody was photographing the same storm to the distant northwest at the same time I was shooting the storm clouds in St. Albans.
The first photo in this post is what the folks at Mount Washington saw at sunset. The second photo is what I saw at sunset. Two very different perspectives on the storm, but two examples of how beautiful a thunderstorm can be.
