After the Storm is Over

After the storm is over
And the rains have come and gone
After the storm is over
I was there all along.
From "After the Storm Is Over," by Bill Miller

We've had needed rain for the last several afternoons. On Saturday evening, the sky looked like this after one storm ended and before another began:

Today (Monday), the sky after the storm was beautiful. About 8:35 this evening, a rainbow appeared in the southeast:

The Monday sunset was nice, too:

After the storm was over and the rains had come and gone, I'm glad I was there with my camera.

We saw the rainbow last night too. It was one of the most beautiful I've seen in a long time.

The sunset along Golden View was breathtaking as well.

Very nice pictures!!

Beautiful photos. Absolutely breathtaking. And, to think I thought Arizona had cornered the market on beautiful sunsets.

Your blog is wonderful.

We also saw that rainbow! You take great pictures. And yes, the storms have been beautiful. Always reminds me of heaven.

That was one of the best rainbows I've seen in years! I can't believe I just happened to walk out the door at exactly the right moment.

I'm glad I got a picture, even though that picture doesn't do it justice.

Lately, watching the sky has been better than watching TV.

Oh I LOVE the rainbow! I'll never forget when Shannon and I were first married we lived in some apartments off of Ogden Rd. in Roanoke. One day, driving home from work, I turned the corner and saw two rainbows pouring INTO Ogden. I've never seen the beginning or the end of one - I drove right THROUGH them. If only I could have grabbed the pot of gold!
