Evening After Thunderstorm in Daytona Beach Shores

The blunt of the thunderstorm was across the  Intracoastal, but you could see the lightning and still hear the sound of thunder...

I was working at my computer watching the retention pond filling up with water turning it into what we call «seasonal waterfront". I did not notice when the rain stopped, and then suddenly saw the clouds lit with sunlight. It was such a metamorphose...

I rushed to the roof with my camera, as I have been waiting for this moment for some time. The ocean was dark. The sky over the Intracoastal was dark, but the sun was making it through the clouds, and the colors were breathtaking.

I kept shooting and every couple of minutes it looked different, so there was another batch of photos in a fruitless attempt to catch the magic of nature...

By the time I was done with the sunset on the Intracoastal, it was dark. I shot this photo of Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach Shores with little hope it will be sharp and not blurred as I did not have a tripod, but, surprisingly, it was steady enough.

And in the morning there were no signs of yesterday's thunderstorm, the skies were open and the sun was rising over the calm waters of the ocean... And I went back and took another few photos of a new day.

I am in love with Daytona Beach Shores. This small city, which is only a few hundred yards wide, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal (Halifax River). It is everything I need. It is still a city with people and lights around, and where you can live without a car and at the same time there is this quality of living in a small place, where time is slower and people are relaxed and friendly.

Jon, good photos, and a combination of evening-night and morning shot is contrasting and is good

I love the photos.  You are great with your camera.  The daytime photos make and the last paragraph of your blog makes me want to move to Daytona Beach, FL.
