Vancouver Summer Sunsets

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tornado warnings for various counties scroll along the TV screen while we watch local news coverage of flash floods here in Iowa. This isn’t exactly the sunny July summer I was expecting in Iowa although I’m happy to hear that back home in Vancouver you are not suffering the same fate. The heat is intense, the humidity is sticky on one’s skin, and for brief moments the clouds part enough to catch a glimpse of a spectacular sunset.

The sun is setting in Eastern Iowa...

I just know that by Friday when it clears up (as the forecasts are predicting) it will be absolutely breathtaking to watch the sun roll along the backs of the green corn-covered hills. In the meantime, I’m dreaming of home so here is a quick compilation of sunset photos from the Miss604 Flickr Group.

If you would like to brighten my evening please feel free to add your sunset (or I’ll even take sunrise) photos to the Miss604 Flickr Group or @Miss604 on Twitter with a twitpic. For now, I’m keeping a close eye on the KatKam too.

Update Thank you for the submissions I’ve already received tonight:

    Beautiful pictures. I really miss Vancouver. Wish I knew where each picture was taken.

    That’s the thing about Vancouver. You start to miss it too quickly. We’re having a heatwave here! Don’t know when you’re returning, but it’s due to cool off to a “chilly” 21c on Monday.

    Hope you’re doing well, despite the stormy predictions. I remember those tornado warnings all too well, having lived in N. Indiana for five years with my family (back in the mid-70’s)!
