Clouds on Nine

Much of our family time was spent on the golf course this weekend…in between rain and thunderstorms.  This is one of the more dramatic images of the sky just before sunset Friday evening.

Rim Light Defined Clouds

Two evenings ago we ventured out for a walk along the river.  On our way home, we are driving alongside the sunset.  The sky was so interesting that is seemed as though the clouds and sun were performing for us.  As the storm clouds rolled passed the sun, we say numerous shapes and the best of all was the rim light framing out the clouds just in front of the setting sun.  Because of the fact that there are few shoulders on the roads in our part of the country, we didn’t have a great place to stop so that I could photograph the rim light around the clouds.  There were way too many tall trees that blocked the view.  When we were finally able to pull to the side, the rim light wasn’t as definitive, but from the image below you’ll see how interesting the sky was Sunday evening.  The sun coming through the clouds almost looks like a flame in the evening sky.
