Stormy Skies!

Us girls took a trip yesterday down to Lethbridge for a bit of shopping, dining, and girl time. Our trip back home at the end of the day was a sky full of dramatic clouds and colours and Rainbows.
Just a hint of a rainbow in the distance. By the time I dug my camera out of the bag it was starting to fade. I thought maybe I had missed it but it only got better as the miles went by.

We saw flocks and flocks of birds flying across the sky in front of the advancing storm. You can see a V of birds above the red and white sign. Just one of many flocks.

The sky is so huge in this country! I can't get over the vastness of it.
You would think that having lived in B.C. where it rains all the time, that one would get to see Rainbows more often. Truth is we hardly saw one at all. That is because you need the sun to shine at the same time as it rains, and while it rained a lot it was hardly ever sunny at the same time, hence, no rainbows to see. 
I have been in Alberta for two months and just yesterday saw my first Rainbow!! How gorgeous and beautiful is that!!!

I love the colours of the stormy clouds. You can't paint that colour!!

One end of the Rainbow!

My camera did not do justice to the sunset that was happening behind us seen through the side rear mirror. The sky was a blaze of yellow,orange and reds.

Great photos! But that doesn't look like gold at the end of the rainbow, or even candy. Too bad!

Some real drama here.

Wow, these are lovely. Good thing someone else was driving so you could take all these photos!

Wow, the sky sure is vast. I wish I could see such a view as well. Love the rainbow over the wheat field.

These skies are magnificent! Oh I would love to experience to stand in such an open landscape and view the skies - beautiful!
