While we woke up to pure blue sky almost every morning at McDowell Mountain Regional Park, one day it gradually began to be filled with the most amazing clouds! What a treat to my photographic eye!
Someone sure picked the perfect day to hop into their powered para-glider. Imagine being surrounded by these amazing, continually dancing clouds!
I couldn't resist snapping a couple of pics of our humble home with this magical background.
I took this shot while we were waiting for the tow truck. Yep, turns out our van ordeals weren't over yet! I'm not even gonna get into the details. Let's just cross our fingers (and our toes!!!) that THIS TIME they have indeed identified the real booboo.
By the time we got back to the campground the cloud cover was real thick.
See the birds on the saguaros?
We found out who's making the holes in many of these big fellows!
At some point the sky looked like it was divided with straight lines!
But the real show started at dusk! Only the evening before I'd been complaining to Bruce about the lack of interesting sunsets, as the sun would disappear behind mountains in the distance. "What you need are some clouds!" he replied, and boy, was he ever right!
The spectacle that unfolded in front of my eyes as the sun went down that night was unlike anything I'd ever seen before!
I know, I know... I kinda went crazy with the camera but it just couldn't be helped!
If you thought that the sky was on fire wait til you see these next ones!
This is one of my favorites!
And the grand finale...
Now let's all take a big collective breath and sigh! ;-)
