Shadow Shot Sunday is a meme started by Tracy who writes the Hey Harriet blog. For guidelines and information on how to participate, look Here.
I recently returned from a road trip which took me from my home in River Falls, WI out to the West coast. I did some interstate highway driving, but I prefer the 2-lane backroads. A more peaceful drive with fantastic scenery. Todays Shadow Shot was taken early in the morning as I crossed into Colorado from Wyoming just West of Laramie. As I came to the border, I see some threatening weather only to find it is a huge massive cloud suspended above the Medicine Bow Mountains. The second photo is of a rainbow I spotted just off to the West when nearing the pass into Colorado on the same mountain range.
On this journey, I took many photos with the Shadow Shot Sunday theme in mind. As the weeks move forward, I'll share them with you. Being aware of what I'm actually seeing made the trip even more interesting for me than usual. Some of my photos had a purpose. I hope you enjoy them.
The trip took me to California via central Nevada with a week spent riding motorcycles along the Lost Coast and Kings Range just North of Mendecino. I also had two days riding in Nevada's Toiyabi National Forest near Austin along US Highway 50.

As I drove in sunshine, the rain fell in the mountains creating a fabulous rainbow and engulfing the entire mountain in shadow
Peace to all.
