After the rain ... Wednesday sunset





Weather report: Wednesday's rain was reported as a "trace." Thursday - clear blue skies, cool, high 76 degrees Fahrenheit. -- Beautiful, but not what we need.

A beautiful healthy-looking coyote came by the back fence this morning. The doves took off but the quail ignored it. There are ten Gambrel's Quail that come through the yard regularly. For the past couple of weeks, the quail have shown up several times a day, foraging under the mesquite trees. This is unusual. In the past they've come once in the early morning and once just before sunset.

Love the pics. We have some good morning sunrises in Nevada too.

Hi Cynthia - I'm sorry I've misled you. We do have great sunrises, but these photos were from yesterday's sunset after the first tiny bit of rain we've had since last October. I've changed the title on the post.

I'm glad you wrote, though. Your blog is very interesting and I'll plan to read it this evening in my blog-reading time. You've posted some beautiful photos to illustrate your posts. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Well. Arizona looks beautiful from your photos--either sunrise or sunset. Sometimes I don't read all the words well. I blame it on the medications. LOL

Thank you for looking at my blog. I am delighted. Most of the photos were shot by my husband Edward D. Tune. I think the elephant and the star picture are the only two that were not our personal pictures. oh, and the ARRL Emergency Patch.

Wow, it is so beautiful there. I love the light on those mountains and the rainbow. I'm glad you were out there with your camera.

RD - Thank you! I went outside because I noticed the light on the trees outside of my study window. The rainbow was a complete surprise - I was photographing the mountains and turned around and wow!

Today there hasn't been a cloud in the sky - not even a tiny one.

I love the first photo! Good use of light, it has such a tropical feel to it.
It's all about light :)

Hi Cindy. I always appreciate your comments. It was that light that took me away from my study - I love that special evening light.

Pam,

The light is beautiful on the mountains. I remember those muted yet vibrant colors when I lived in the Southwest. It really takes me back home.

love,

Love the first photo Pam, I've always be partial to warm sunlight backed by grey skies.

Thor - The reflected glow of a good sunset on the mountains is always magical.

Clare - The first one's my favourite, too. That light is what drew me outside with my camera. Thanks for coming by from your Arctic heaven.
