Yes, yes, I know I haven't been posting like I used to... I have been swamped with my summer program, so I catch what I can. I do love sharing my weather knowledge, just haven't got much time to spare.
Last night, while my wonderful groom and I were taking our 2 mile walk around the neighborhood, I looked up to see quite an amazing thing. A cumulonimbus structure was impeding the light coming off the, already below the horizon, sun, which offered a dramatic cloud shadow so dark that it actually blocked our ability to see the altocumulus/cirrocumulus mix in the area beneath it. It was powerful and dramatic, and as soon as I got back to the house, I ran in to grab my camera, so I could share it with you today.You can see the richness of color outside the shadow, where light was still grasping out from beneath the tree line, begging not to relinquish itself to night. The powerful light offered the opportunity for this amazing shadow. I don't know about you, but I thank God for that powerful light.
The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.Have a brilliant day!
