I decided to do the Frosted Designs Sketch challenge this week and because two sister I know just became designers, it is extra special to me! Congrats to Kelly and Erin.
I chose the photos I took last summer when I went camping with a friend during her dog search and rescue training. I was going to be a hider for all the dogs to try and find. We set out the night before to get camp all scoped out and set up. Not long after we got there, this huge storm rolled in. There was lightning striking down awfully close to where we were so we went and sat in the car. Two adult, two teens and a German Shepherd! The storm center was right over the lake where we were setting up and it just swirled around for hours! It got mighty hot in that car! Suburban actually, but still! We were watching the lightning hit the ridge just on the other side of that small lake and, boy let me tell ya, it was close!
By the time it stopped long enough for us to get out, it was dark and it was raining HARD. We got our tents set up and then we had to dig trenches around them so the water would be diverted around where we were trying to sleep. It rained... all... night... long! The blessing in that is the dawn broke with such beauty and the mosquitoes were washed away! Yay!
Here is the sketch
And here is my take on it. Notice the rotation on that cloud! And lightning was striking on the other side of the lake! Yikes!
And where would I be without a second page ;)
