Evening Sky

Tuesday, there was an 80% chance of rain for our area. Most of the day was rain-free, but we had a brief shower in the early evening while  Motor Man and I were at dinner. When we arrived home and looked out over the river, this is what we saw.  You may want to click to enlarge: there was a dark odd-shaped cloud to the left, and a portion of a rainbow to the right.

 A little later in the evening,  the sky was such pretty shades of blue.
