Rainbow, Osprey and Pretty Sunset – Aftermath of a N.J. Summer Thunderstorm

Numerous photos of last night’s photographically awesome storm, rainbow and sunset were posted locally, recording a spectacle which left jaws dropping. Many captures of the boiling storm clouds, intense and full rainbow, and incredibly striking sunset – many far better than these, show how good, and prolific everyday photography has become in recent years.
