A combination of the right kind of clouds, openings in them and the sun's angle produced these colorful displays on Thursday evening, July 24, 2014. My attention to the sky was prompted by the yellowish color I noticed from within my house and I captured these three images just after 8:30 PM CDT. The display preceded the arrival of rain by about 8 hours. From top to bottom, the images face west, north and northeast. Shot from our back deck on Brentwood Drive NE in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
