We've had several heavy rainfalls recently, usually as lines of thunderstorms crossed southern Ontario along a cold front. The other night I was out driving when I caught one, and I had my camera with me.
The dark clouds sort of snuck up on me surepticiously, til I suddenly looked out the side window and realized what was happening.
A white halo of light from the sun around the top, but very dark clouds approaching fast underneath!
Made for some striking cloud patterns!
I stopped to pick up the dog, turned around and headed home. Shortly I saw the downpour had begun to the north. There was even a bit of yellowy light at the back corner, a sign to watch for tornado winds in my mind.
It mostly passed me by though, as I was heading west and it was heading east - fast.
I turned away from the storm at the village of Rocklyn, and headed south to home. But behind me I could see that there was going to be some pretty heavy rain!
By the time I was home 15 minutes later, it was clearing.
And in a short while we had a gentle sunset.
Not very bright colours, but quite the contrast with the storm of an hour earlier. All in all pretty typical late summer/early fall weather, except this year it means the grass just keeps growing! At least it's turned colder here, pleasant fall weather for getting things done outside.
