Well, we finally got some half way interesting weather rolling through Denver today, a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and one that missed me earlier in the day. The first cell that passed over us today had some neat structure on its base but I failed to get to it in time. I did get some shots of the anvil after it passed over and headed out of town. The later cell proved a bit more interesting for me, producing a rainbow that did not last too long.
Since the storm passed by near sunset, some interesting colors started to show, at one point, the thought of, “this looks like root-beer” crossed my mind.
Of course, the sun did go behind the cloud that did not do the Rainbow any good, something more spectacular showed up in the west: Crepuscular rays.
Not too shabby, I think since I was stuck at work while this was going on. The key is, to time your breaks just right. The thunderstorm produced some very nice lighting which was helped by the sun which was getting ready to set.
