This was not the first choice for photo of the day. This morning, Ella Newell and I were planning to create a photo to show our support for the victims of Orlando and the LGBT community. We planned to light a white lily on fire and take a self portrait holding the flower. However, the waxy leaves and petals were resistant to the flames even after soaking them in isopropyl alcohol. We took the photo without fire and it didn't quite feel right. We agreed that a different photo would be best to publish for the day. A violent storm started in the afternoon and the clouds were the canvas for a beautiful sunset. Unfortunately my camera was packed in the back of the car so I had to capture the beautiful scene on my phone.
