Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Late yesterday afternoon, after a day of heavy rain and wind and storms, the skies finally cleared. Out my kitchen window, I watched the clouds scudding by, still wind-driven, and the glow of sunset through the bare trees. I couldn’t resist. I went outside to take a few shots.

This morning, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge appeared in my mailbox. The theme? Illumination!

So here’s a photo of a winter sunset, Mississippi style, after a day of turbulent weather.
