Lightning Cloud Sunset on Lake Monroe
When you're in a kayak on Lake Monroe, Florida you're aware of the dangers below. This alligator-infested lake was home to Florida's longest gator and when you see them in an eating frenzy it's terrifying.
But on this day it was the weather that caused trepidation. This is a photo of a layered feast of danger and beauty -- lightning clouds over a sunset you could name a drink after.
