Wyoming Storm Ending

After a great day of Devils Tower photography, storm observing and good food, we headed NW from Newcastle in search of a wonderful Wyoming sunset. It found us here. An isolated, elevated thunderstorm formed to our SW behind the earlier complex and moved eastward, intercepting the lowering rays of sunlight as it dissipated. A faint secondary rainbow formed to the right of the main one, and a nice little set of postcrepuscular rays framed the view to the left. Refreshing and rejuvenating, the cool breezes carried the scent of moist earth and sage, songs of hundreds of western meadowlarks echoing under this golden light, a fantastic finale to a fine afternoon.
