Sky Watch Friday - August 13th, 2009

Tonight we are having a wonderful, welcome rain. The blue hills show faintly through the mist, and if you listen carefully when you go out you will hear sweet breathing and contented sighs coming from the garden.

Last night, and the night before the evening show was enchanting.



Tuesday evening, 8.16 p.m.



Tuesday evening at 8.17



and Tuesday evening at 8.18

Just a preview to the fiery rolling clouds on Wednesday.



Wednesday at 8.12 p.m.



..at 8.14 p.m.



at 8.16 p.m. - and here's a bonus. Off to the north, a lovely quiet sky, watching all these fiery shenanigans with a certain serenity.

Love the big puffy clouds and all the great colours. Wonderful show!

Glad you're getting some rain.

Stunning shots. I would imagine the smoke from the fires up around Kelowna are still continuing to the dramatic sunsets you are seeing.

Those are amazing clouds, we just never get anything like that here in So Calif.
The color and depth are captured in your photo so well I can feel the thrill of the storm arriving, thanks for sharing!
