Yesterday we had pouring rain showers most of the day. Every now and then the sun would break through, but then the rain would come again, and the sky would turn gray. My husband and I had an hours drive to a wedding, and just as we left the house the skies opened once again with a torrential downpour. As we ran to the car we noticed an amazing rainbow arching across the sky. The rain was too heavy to stop for a photo, but once we were on the highway and the rain had let up, I rolled down the window and attempted to capture it. It was not as close as it had been from the vantage point of our driveway, but I could still see it.
here it is close up
It arched way up into the sky, unfortunately obscured by the clouds in these photos. Which brings me to the clouds we saw as we drove along the Parkway. They were like mountains in the sky. They filled the entire skyline ahead of us.
The sun began to set as we continued our drive, and I captured more wonderful clouds from the vantage point of a bridge overlooking a river. I have not altered any of the photos – the colors are what I actually saw.
