As we began to drive, the clouds moving a swirling in the strong winds and the ever changing lighting from the setting sun, began a spectacular show. It seemed like I was stopping about every 5oo feet to snap a picture or two. This culminated in a double rainbow, one that even impressed my friend Lou. The light on the mountain was changing by the second, due to the clouds in the west and the setting sun interacting. I shot a lot of nice photos and inclde a few here.
However, this time I barely recognized it at all. It was spinning so fast, you could hear the metal creaking a quarter mile away. The angry clouds in the north east added an almost surreal feeling to this, and off in the distance a dust and rain storm approached. I quickly set up and under cover of the car rear hatch, started snapping pictures. I like these a great deal too. I will sometime soon publish them to an album on Facebook, so keep your eye out for it.
Wanted a moon rise that ended up being blocked out by clouds and a storm. Ended up with pictures of the mountains splashed with color and a scary wind pump. All followed by ice cream. Serendipitous for sure!
