After the storm moved through, the clouds outside were very unusual and quite beautiful. The sunset trying to shine through these clouds gave everything a strange pinkish hue. It really was quite lovely as were these storm cloud pictures taken shortly after 9 PM.
We have a Netflix subscription at our house that gets somewhat neglected during the summer months due to long hours of daylight. However, with the rain tonight, we had the opportunity to watch a movie. We have 3 movies here right now, and I tend to choose mostly titles I'm interested in (because Rick has a tendency to doze off during any movie watched in the evening). I let him pick the movie from these 3 choices: An Inconvenient Truth, Rent, and Grizzly Man. He chose Grizzly Man.
This was an interesting documentary about Timothy Treadwell. Here's what the movie description says: "Renowned nonfiction director Werner Herzog chronicles the tragic and untimely death of outdoorsman Timothy Treadwell, who devoted his life to studying grizzly bears living in the Alaskan wilderness -- only to have one of them maul him to death. Pieced together mainly from Treadwell's own video footage, this fascinating documentary goes deep into the wilderness of one man's mind to uncover how he spent his final days." (It was rated "R" for some scenes with liberal use of the "F" word.)
This was a very interesting movie with some fabulous footage of bears and foxes he encountered and befriended while living in Alaska. Timothy truly cared about the bears and their welfare, although his concern was misinterpreted by many people who didn't understand why he was doing this. Do any of you remember the story of Timothy Treadwell, his work with grizzly bears, and his tragic death? Apparently he was featured on Dateline NBC once and he also spoke to schoolchildren on many occasions.
