Lake Thurmond Sunset
I was hoping for the sun, instead had much cloud cover, the sun tried to peak through but never made it. This image was taken on Thurmond Lake, Georgia side at Petersburg Campground. The lake and campground seem deserted this weekend. The sun looked like it exploded, an hour later the bottom fell out with rain. Oh to hear rain on a roof top of a camper, it will almost put you to sleep.
