Orange Storm and Palm Trees

Monsoon season is starting in our desert. 

Here is a photo of palm trees in my backyard and my neighbor's backyard amid the orange storm descending upon us from the sky.

The color was truly surprising and changed quickly. On the lower right of the photo you can see some open sky with no orange clouds. 

I love the colors and atmosphere during these unique storm moments. In the Valley, we generally just have blue sky and hardly a cloud so it is quite fun when we get some drama in our skies.

Lovely colour on the sky. I've never seen such a beauty! Right now despite it being only 6pm here in the evening.... it's completely dark and about to rain.... I wish I had my camera with me...

You've definitely captured drama here. Love the way the sky makes such a stunning backdrop for the trees.

That's something we don't experience here in the Pacific Northwest. They must come in fairly quickly. That is some color!
