Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

I have quite a few flag photos I’ve taken this week, but I think my favorite is this one I snapped with my phone last night as we drove home from the store just before sunset.  Storm clouds were building, and I loved the flag set against the gray clouds. I added a texture with the Mextures app in my phone.

Here’s one from last month’s rodeo in Montana.  The young boy on the horse raced around and around the ring while the national anthem played and everyone stood at attention- hats off.  A beautiful sight!

After we got home from the store last night, we sat on the porch as the sky darkened,  the wind picked up, thunder crashed in the distance, and the sky lit up with a a lightning display that went on for hours.  At first I tried to take photos, but it was so windy that it was impossible to keep the camera still- so I sat down and just enjoyed the show.  If we had any rain it came during the night and wasn’t enough to make puddles.  It’s dry out there now.  But the monsoon season has begun- bring on the rain!
