While awaiting the shower of electrifying colors and the cloud bursting sounds typical of a 4th of July celebration; my attention (and my camera) were drawn to the calming beauty of nature. The moment was extraordinary, I just wanted to share it with everyone. The images have not been altered or enhanced in any manner, they simply did not need, it I hope you agree. Enjoy! Please take the time to click on the individual images, anyone of them could have been the featured photo.
