Photo Challenge #11 - Morning, Noon and Night

This weekend we went camping and I was very excited because I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take pictures for this week's challenge. Well, it would have been with the exception that the weather didn't really cooperate most of the weekend. It rained A LOT!! That made the camping experience very interesting, to say the least!

So with cloudy, and rainy skies much of the weekend, taking pictures for this challenge was.....well, a challenge!! The whole idea was to capture different lighting in the same spot, at different times of the day. This was virtually impossible when all we had was clouds and rain! I did manage to come up with these two pictures. The first one was taken in the morning with the sun shining on Ward Lake, where we camped. (This was almost the only time we saw the sun all weekend!)

This second picture was taken in the evening after one of the storms had passed and the sun tried to break through the clouds for a few minutes. It did well enough to create a rainbow, which I managed to photograph!

So that's my contribution for this week! Stay tuned though.....I took 110 pictures this weekend and later on in the week, when I have more time, I'll be posting some of them here! Now I'm off to get ready for my week, finish unpacking from the camping trip and watch a little bit of the Olympics before heading to bed!!
