Crazy mixed up skies here in the Similkameen today....
We woke to rain and still at lunch time the skies were dour and threatening
So we had a little nap.
And when we woke just after two the sun was filtering through the clouds.
Blue sky began to appear.....
What a great picture taking day!!
We set off down the lane and the wispy clouds around K Mountain looked promising
A few more clouds came to see what was happening as we made our way to the Upper Bench
A few raindrops gathered on the windshield as we came to the turn to go along the Cawston Bench
The rain came pelting down, then cleared, then started once more
as we came to the east end of Ginty's Pond
It continued this way, lightening, then darkening
..until at last we reached the highway and turned towards home in a driving rain.
Across the meadow a faint rainbow crept across the rocky hillside,
We turned westward and through the clouds and the pelting rain the sun shone, quite determinedly
Look, look, here towards the north there is blue sky again!
But as we arrive home a rainbow appears in the east, where the skies are still troubled
We had been gone just over an hour, but the heavens had not settled yet.
I sprang from the table at supper to catch the sun on the hills to the east....
and again when another rainbow appeared over the Fairview Pass
Dusk was upon us, then night fell and the moon shone through the clouds
and the day was done as far as the camera was concerned.
