The only place I can think of is the sky around our home. When we first moved into the place we were stuck by the view we had. We live in a little dip between two hills and have an amazing view of both Vancouver Airport in distance to the west and Mt. Baker to the east. We laugh because can see the horrible weather of my home town an hour east while we have relatively clear skies near the ocean. Just a week after our wedding we were privy to front row seats to an amazing lightning storm which went right over us.

I even tried to take a picture of what I saw last week but of course it can't even remotely capture the view.

The sun was setting but the light still hit the clouds and made them look like cotton and they seemed so much closer than usual. I can't even describe it well, but it was breath-taking.

Chain lightning storms are a really good one. They transcend time as long as they last.

Sounds wonderful forwardslash, there's nothing quite like a pink-cotton-candy looking sky, especially when you can look to the sky above your hometown and laugh at the horrible weather they are receiving. -ha.
