Colorful Arizona Sunset

An Arizona sunset taken from my kitchen window looking west towards Camelback Mountain.   The color was magnificent and I liked the profile of my palm tree, mesquite tree, and Camelback Mountain.  The clouds were feathery and it looked like a watercolor.  The two lines in the photo are actually the trunks of the  very tall palm trees.  Palm trees grow to heights of 40 to 50 feet. 

Many of the Arizona daily photo site websites are joining in a monthly theme day on the 15th of each month. Today's theme is sunsets.   Please visit the other Arizona participants.

And an even smaller palm tree further to the right, I guess. They're all nice and crisp in profile when enlarged.

That's a beautiful place you live Julie - I've never been to the States - well, I have seen the inside of JFK airport, but I guess that doesn't count, and it sure ain't Arizona!
