I camped at Lake Rawlings, Virginia to complete my Open Water SCUBA Diving Certification and had a wonderful time getting back to nature. The lake was COLD, but the diving was really neat, complete with an underwater school bus.

Of course the weather wasn’t completely cooperative. We had to stay out of the water and hole up in our cars while a thunderstorm passed. But, let’s just say it was all worth it. What a gorgeous orange sky the storm left behind. These photos are only lightly edited. Such an unbelievable sight!
