God Paints The Prettiest Sunsets In Arizona!

Sunset in Tucson, Arizona

I know I'll get a lot of flak for saying "Arizona"... 

Hawaii has spectacular sunsets.  The Florida Keys are nothing to sneeze at.  But when it comes to the end of day, I'd rather be in Arizona than anywhere else on earth!

I took this photo just before the sun dropped below the mountains to the west.  Our grandkids in New Jersey have gotten nearly a foot of snow this afternoon, and this one's for them.

What an amazing sunset and a beautiful photo.  Nothing can compare to a sunset in Arizona.

That's gorgeous.  I hear that we have been having some incredible sunsets but I have to be honest I'm not up to see them. It is my neighbors telling me how pretty they have been.

Mike that really is beautiful, I still would not trade it for the San Juan Mtns. where I live in Colorado.

Your Tucson sunsets are without rival. As pretty as ours are, yours seem to have the most vibrant colors. :)

Hi Mike, Beautiful and quite the beautiful sunset. We have them here and had I not been out showing property one of the most magnificent sunsets I have ever seen occurred a couple days ago and didn't have my camera. But I sure did think a lot about it and wished I could have shared it. It ranged from blue.grey purple and shades of coral . But I surely do understand what it means to love where you live.

Oh my Mike,

You are so right,..in Key West celebrating the sunset is huge deal at Mallory Dock, that in itself is a life experience. As for the sunrise at the crater on Maui, you're right about that one too. Before dawn (freezing cold) waiting for dawn isan experience.. Biking down the crater is antoher story.

Seems to me like Mike your spectacular photo is another,..I'd just love to be there to experience it....thats the difference of those "life-time" moments.

I have been on my PC lately and photos seem to be darker.  I have to go check this out on my laptop...

Wow, Mike - you're right; it's a beautiful painting by Mother Nature!

I suspect that sunsets can be spectacular anyplace on the earth.  I've seen some in North Carolina that made the sky appear to be on fire.  I've seen them here, over the water, that are memorable. 

Sunsets are nature at it's most beautiful.

...and that's the truth!


Yes it is!  Thanks for commenting.


I seem to recall that happening before.  What kind of screen do you have on your PC?


It's beautiful no matter where you are, isn't it?


Best to you and Bob this weekend!

Terry & Bonnie,

There's just something about the old sun!


Your description of the sunset makes me want to have been there.  I didn't think you ever ventured out without your camera, tho.  LOL


You can be!  Plan a visit!


I think that the closer you get to the equator, the more vibrant the colors.


I'll be over to your blog to check out the San Juan mountains!


It's been too long since I've visited your blog; I'll be over to see what's going on in your neck of the woods.  Thanks for commenting.

No Mike, you're right, Arizona does have the prettiest sunsets. Of course I may be bias because I live here too.

You're not biased; you're just right!
