I've mentioned we've been getting a much needed rain. I'm loving it but I'm sure those in the hills where we had major fires last year wish it would go away. I hope they're safe from mud slides. I thought I'd share some rainy day shots I took today.
This is how it looked on the freeway at about 4:30.
I made a stop at the bank in a shopping center and when I got in the car I turned and finally saw a rainbow I'd been hoping for. I know I ticked a few people off who were trying to leave but I wasn't missing my shot. Yes, I stopped in the middle of the parking lot to take a couple of shots before I realized I could move to another part of the lot and park to take them. :-D
When I pulled out of the lot and headed north the clouds had cleared enough to show the mountains and the fresh show on them. I'm sure you'll notice how drastically different the sky looks in each direction as the storm moved.
Then out of curiosity I drove up to the lake hoping for a great view of the snowy mountains but I wasn't getting any good shots. What caught my attention instead was the number of sea gulls on and over the lake. You should really click on this photo for a larger view. Every white speck you see in the photo is a sea gull in the air and on the lake.
