Rain clouds at sunset

Rain clouds at sunset

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.

      • 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.
