Hmm, sounds like Michael has been here before.  

The sky is amazing here and can change so fast that it is completely different in a very short time frame.

Really like the top shot. We get rain like in the second shot but I never recall this color. Fantastic. :)

Wow, great pictures, I really like the contrast of an hour.  Here I thought I was going to be looking at pictures of a house that was trashed and then cleaned in an hour :p

Hi Mike...Wonderful, absolutely wonderful.  I love photos of the sky.  In fact, I love the sky.  Driving west through the states where everything seems so wide open was a treat for me.  I loved watching changes in the sky.

Thank you.

Sylvia, is that you?

...or Manny?


Glad to oblige.


It's my favorite season of the year.


Thanks for the feature!


The photos, even the movies with western settings, can't do justice to the Open Sky feel of the West.




Thanks for showing up twice!


I enjoy the photography on your blog.  Thanks for stopping by.


Don't you miss Tucson?!


Thanks for saying so.


Ditto my comment to Dorie!


Yes we do!


God paints with a bold palette here in Tucson.




We love the changing weather during the monsoons.  See you on your blog.

I love sky and sunset photos - always so dramatic.  And the second one is a great picture of verga - the rain that evaporates before it hits the ground.

"Verga."  I didn't know it had a name; thanks for teaching me!  See you on your blog.
