the sky looks like rain

August 16, 2014  •  8 Comments

Anyone who has lived in the desert or the western United States understands microclimates and has seen rain pouring out of the sky, arroyos running over their randomly established banks while half a mile away, it is dry as bone.  We humans are constantly teased by the weather and the sky.

Just as the sun was setting Thursday night, the clouds were spectacular - back lit to the point of glowing.  I ran to get my camera already equipped with the 70-200 mm lens and started shooting.

 And then I turned left to look at the actual sunset.  A real cascade of color.

Although on this particular blog site, you cannot click on the featured photograph to make it bigger, you can go to the banner at the top of the page  "All Photographs", drop down to "Featured Photographs" to see the blog theme images.  You can also view any of the photographs on the website in that area as well without having to go to another website.  Cool.

until next Monday,
