As the sun sank fully below the horizon, the clouds lifted.
A wave of bright peach orange floated across the bottom of the sky glowing brightly behind the dark spires of the trees. The light flowed up, ebbing to a light grey blue splashed with the dark flotsam of the rain clouds. Following the light up into the sky, my view shifted to the darkening east where the deep blue tide of night rose.
Living on Vancouver Island, some things I miss are the gorgeous sunsets and dramatic storms played out across the giant canvas of the Alberta sky. Your photo is lovely!
It’s interesting that you don’t get the same drama. I would think being so near the ocean, the storms would be even more intense.
We get some pretty ferocious wind storms here but no thunderstorms, with their accompanying amazing cloud formations. Plus the terrain is very hilly and forested, so you don’t see the same amount of sky above you in all directions like a giant dome.
