Tucson Beauty: The View From Gates Pass

The view from Gates Pass: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender

~ Looking East From Gates Pass at Sunset ~

Days are getting shorter, so I planned to be at Gates Pass for sunset.  Off in the distance, the city of Tucson is painted in blue shadow, highlighted by the pink Rincon Mountains at day's end.  The last rays of the setting sun paint the Tucson Mountains where I stand a deep ochre-red, and the contrast punctuates the peaceful quiet of the desert floor at the end of day.  I expect an amazing sunset!

And I'm not alone in my expectation!  My zoom lens captures a couple silhouetted against an amazing sky.

You've just got to love the desert, God's kaleidoscope.

If you watch for 5 minutes you can see it turn.

Great shots, Mike.

Mike, I agree with everyone else--great photos! I always feel especially blessed when I am allowed to catch nuances of our Creator via photo. 

Also--(sidebar), I usually read profiles of all who post at my blog. I re-read yours today. Thank you for giving me a clear understanding of "Correspondent" Lender. I also wonder how Sendout Cards works for you?

The sky was beautiful when I drove through and saw both the sunset and the sunrise out west, but that is some amazing art you captured there Mike.  Enjoy Christmas.

In my busy-ness of 2011, I have completely forgotten your wonderful blog posts on AR. I just wanted to say that I continue to be BLOWN away on the beauty of AZ sunsets when I left AZ for Florida last year.

I'm glad to see that you're still sharing these magnificent photos and descriptive narratives to the AR community. I am subscribing to your blog posts so I can continue to "see what you see" back home.
