Rainfall at sundown

It was July 2010. We stopped to visit friends at their place down the south end of Okanagan Lake after a few weeks of camping around Southern BC and Alberta. We were sitting out on the jetty, when an incredible weather formation came together right as the sun was going down. It rained in isolated patches limited to a small area that slowly swept by, while we sat there bone dry and warm on a summer evening, occasionally feeling a drop that was caught in the breeze. In this image you can see the patch of precipitation, illuminated by the late rays of the sun, falling on the mountains in the distance. My fascination with weather patterns, particularly cloud formations, has continued to grow in the years since witnessing this event… something I’ve not seen again since.
