Enough with the video references, eh?
I love the big bright-blue skies that I associate with Alberta and Saskatchewan, and was delighted to discover that Arizona and Utah and other southwestern states often have them too. But sometimes a more-dramatic sky is worth the price of admission.
After a few rainy days in Gilbert the angled afternoon sun broke through, but the dark sky suggested that the rain was not done yet. That combination of light and dark played really well with the white white chimney of the outdoor fireplace and the brick wall behind it.
Maybe storm clouds are more attractive when the sun is shining, just as rain sounds best on a roof under which I sit, warm and dry.
