Summer skies around the globe
Dramatic Sunrise Over the Steppes
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
I awoke one morning, before sunrise, to be greeted by the sight of the sun trying to push its way through a mass of gray clouds. It looked like it was going to be a downpour but not a drop. At first, the sky was colored with shades of magenta dotted with pockets of blue. As the clouds shifted and the sun continued to rise, the sky turned orange. I’ve never seen such intense colors in a morning sky; the evolving light show was spectacular! This went on for about a half hour and at the end, I was rewarded with the sight of a double rainbow! After the rainbow faded, light drizzle followed, then the clouds parted and I was welcomed to a beautiful, sunny day.
