Monsoon skies in Tucson Arizona

The amazing sunsets of our monsoon season just don't seem to quit. We've had some rain too which helps the cactus and other plants store up moisture for dryer times. I haven't played much with my new camera- being more comfortable with my little point and shoot, but I got it out the past couple nights and took these shots of the sunset.














Happy SkyWatch Friday! To join in yourself and to see the amazing views from around the world visit SkyWatch Friday.

beautiful shots... I think I like the first one the best with the cactus silouetted against the sky... but they're all really great.

Wonderful series! the colors against the silouettes reminded me of the vintage hand colored postcards Ive seen!

Awesome monsoon sky images. My favorite is the one with three palm trees against purple sky. The ones with the beautiful silhouettes do look like postcards.

Those skies are incredible. I guess that's one big advantage of monsoon season - great skywatching!

An excellent series of sunset. The monsoons do bring life and sight to the desert.
