Thanks Teresa! That’s a big area of sky there and it seemed to be just full of action. There was a gale force wind blowing when I took the picture.
(By the way, Teresa Evangeline’s Poetry isn’t accepting my comments again.)
The mountains are wonderful, but I’m coming to love the prairies. This is a beautiful photo, and makes me “homesick” for the Kansas I so recently visited. The play of shadows over the hills, the interaction of land and sky, is thrilling.
The topography of western Montana is quite varied.This photos was taken only about 12 miles from my house. Just a few miles to the left of the photo stands 7400 foot tall Baldy Mountain where some of my high mountains photos were taken. About 80 miles past the rainbow is Glacier Park.
A lot of the variety of weather here is caused by the mountains and the extreme elevation changes that the weather fronts encounter as they flow over us from the coast. Many times I have watched waves of clouds change shape and even density as they rise up-slope over a mountain peak. It’s wonderful to watch!
