dramatic clouds Gold Canyon-001

Virga, which is very common here in the southwest U.S., is a shaft of rain which evaporates before it reaches the ground. You can see short streaks of it under the lower cloud in the photo above.  The sky is frequently beautiful here in Arizona at sunset, but not usually quite as dramatic as this one. You’ll see it more clearly if you click on the photo. The snail has landed!
