Halo above Arat Square, Kyzl, Tuva, August 1, 2014
The Tuvan expression for “halo” translates to “the yurt that encircles the sun”. According to local nomads: in the summertime, a halo around the sun forecasts really hot weather. During the winter months, a halo around the moon is the forecast for really cold weather.

This moment way more epic on clear blue sky… but within 15 minutes (had to run home to grab my camera) these clouds rolled up on everyone’s business.

Rainbow, Calgary, June 20, 2014Shortly after taking this photo there was an epic rainstorm full of booming thunder and sizzling lighting. As the sun set, half the sky was neon orange and the other half was electric blue! I hear tomorrow’s officially the first day of summer and I’m really happy we had a great storm to start things off.
