Photo: Last Night's Sunset

During the past two days I showed the ugly side of our monsoon season -- dust storms.  A benefit of the monsoon season is the additional texture that it adds to our vibrant desert sunsets.  This is a photo of last night's sunset taken from our back yard.

Most of the year our sunsets offer stunning colors saturating a clear, cloudless sky.  After all, we have sunshine 90% of the daylight hours -- more than any other metropolitan area in the USA.

During the monsoon season, billowing clouds form during the afternoon and often the either catch the colors of the sunset or are silhouetted against the sunset.

I did not saturate or enhance the colors of this photo.  This is how the camera captured the scene.  This is a late sunset shot, when the colors are deeper.

This week we have photos of Tanzania posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

This is much better than the dust storm photos.

You beat me to it. After I posted my late afternoon clouds, I went out again for the sunset. I'll post it tomorrow.
