Rain Or Smoke

Driving home in late July, I noticed this very large flume of white smoke trailing up to the sky off in the distance. Now I knew it couldn't be smoke, it was too large of an area. Perhaps I caught a photo of the sky falling and those are clouds trickling down to earth. From where I took this photo it was mostly sunny, with the sun behind me, but across the Mississippi River and into Wisconsin, it was rainy weather. I figure the suns rays were at the right angle to brighten up the raindrops to give it the appearance of smoke or the clouds falling.

What an amazing shot. Was someone else driving or did you take this while steering in heavy traffic?

I took this photo while driving. I'm in the entrance/exit bypass lane which is separated from the main traffic to the left....see, there's no one in front of me!

It's very heavy rain... downpour to be exact. I love watching storms like that, as long as they don't come near my car :-). Nice catch!
