Weekly Photo Challenge: Big … Stormy Day On The Prairie

The big skies of the Canadian prairies are dramatic, but never more so than when shrouded in the enormous, ominous clouds of a big, thunderous summer storm system.

As I don’t live in the prairies these selected images are from a recent trip to the Drumheller area of Alberta. The skies were covered in storm systems that day which we watched develop and dissipate as we journeyed.

There’s nothing quite like a big stormy day on the prairie …

Thanks for visiting …

  1. beautiful photos.. we also witnessed a thunderstorm in Drumheller some years ago while camping there. I’ve not seen anything like it since.

    • Thanks for visiting and for your comment, Vicki. … I can only imagine how intense that experience must have been. Drumheller is an area of such weather extremes. … Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much for your comment. It means a lot. My family has a checkered history on the prairie so the spirit of it runs deep in my veins. Your words tell me this is reflected in my vision of this beautiful land. … Thanks for visiting. … Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚

    • I agree, there’s nothing like an old barn or outbuilding. I watch for them all the time when I’m travelling in the countryside. … Thanks for visiting and leaving your comment, Jeff. … Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚

    • Especially in Alberta, I’d say. The sky is so big you can see a storm developing way in the distance and watch it get closer, which we did a couple of times on this particular day. … Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚
