It looks like the sky is on fire.  What a great shot.

It is interesting to see rain evaporating before it hits the ground...

Fire and Ice.  Beautiful photos as always.

An hour can make a difference in so many things... these photos could be a great analogy of many things in life.  Same building in the photos but oh the difference a little time makes.

Morning Mike -- your monsoons are creeping into our daily weather activity.    We had just a gully washer last night!   Sure is helping the grass green up!   Great photos too Mike!

I appreciate your perspective.


Thanks!  Stop by any time.


I wondered if anyone would notice that.


Thanks for being the first to comment.

Mike, wow!  that is beautiful!

Mike, both photos are truly breathtaking. To imagine such a change in one hour – amazing!

Awesome - don't we have the best sky views when monsoons are here? 

Posted by Juli Vosmik, Scottsdale/Cave Creek, AZ real estate 480-710-0739 (Dominion Fine Properties) over 10 years ago

Beautiful contrast photos, Mike.

Amazing photos - truly beautiful

Hmm, sounds like Michael has been here before.  

The sky is amazing here and can change so fast that it is completely different in a very short time frame.  

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) over 10 years ago

Mike I can always count on you to deliver, what a wonderful contrast and oh so beautiful.  I too love taking shots of the sky.

Really like the top shot. We get rain like in the second shot but I never recall this color. Fantastic. :)


Posted by Steve Hoffacker, Certified Aging In Place Specialist-Instructor (Steve Hoffacker LLC) over 10 years ago

Wow, great pictures, I really like the contrast of an hour.  Here I thought I was going to be looking at pictures of a house that was trashed and then cleaned in an hour :p

Posted by Carissa Acker (Real Estate by Design with Keller Williams Realty) over 10 years ago

Hi Mike...Wonderful, absolutely wonderful.  I love photos of the sky.  In fact, I love the sky.  Driving west through the states where everything seems so wide open was a treat for me.  I loved watching changes in the sky.

Thank you.

These great shots are now featured on "Speechless Sundays." Congratulations. :)

This view looks familiar great photography!

Posted by Anonymous over 10 years ago

Sylvia, is that you?

...or Manny?


Glad to oblige.


It's my favorite season of the year.


Thanks for the feature!


The photos, even the movies with western settings, can't do justice to the Open Sky feel of the West.




Thanks for showing up twice!


I enjoy the photography on your blog.  Thanks for stopping by.


Don't you miss Tucson?!


Thanks for saying so.


Ditto my comment to Dorie!


Yes we do!


God paints with a bold palette here in Tucson.




We love the changing weather during the monsoons.  See you on your blog.

I love sky and sunset photos - always so dramatic.  And the second one is a great picture of verga - the rain that evaporates before it hits the ground.

Posted by Susan Neal, Fair Oaks CA & Sacramento Area Real Estate Broker (RE/MAX Gold, Fair Oaks) over 10 years ago


"Verga."  I didn't know it had a name; thanks for teaching me!  See you on your blog.

Mike, beautiful photos. I learned something new today from Susan...verga!

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate over 10 years ago

Mike, these are both so beautiful in very different ways.  Nice catch.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 10 years ago


What beautiful photos, reminds me of what the impressionist painters used to do.  Keep painting ths same thing in different lights.  Thanks.
