“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
― Vivian Greene

I couldn’t resist blogging twice in one day, even though it has almost been 24 hours since my last photos for today! We’ve just been out and about looking for a (safe) location for tonight’s storm photography, it promises to be a fantastic one it’s just whether or not the storm hits us.
