parley view parsnip... clouds rain, rain clouds. . . rain

Some weekend photos of clouds, rain more clouds and some rain.
.
 .

 Fast moving wind is pushing the storm west.
Looks like it is traveling east but it is really moving west (right)

.
Last week's amazing sunset.
 .

 If you can make this one bigger, the lines and colors near the land are fabulous.

 When the sun sets the colors change fast.

 Sundays clouds.

 Love love love the circle tube cloud.


 Same clouds later in the evening at sunset. Looking north with the sunset colors from the west.


As always, just because I can here is your pretty for the start of the week.

A smiling Hawaiian Kiauea volcano.


update,
I wrote this post Sunday night. 
The Monday morning clouds are thick and full with moisture.
The air if fresh and full of the green rain desert purfume.
 The washes and rivers are all full with the runoff. If I can sometime today I will try to
go out and shot a few photos.

  1. Hi, Gayle!

    These are fabulous sky shots filled with color, drama and mystery. You can see many spectacular sights in a 360 degree panorama around your home. That circle tube cloud makes it appear that someone very large was up there puffing on a pipe and blowing smoke rings. (It wasn't Shady. :)

    You and thehamish have a wonderful week, dear friend Gayle!

    1. Not so ominous because on the other side could have blue sky or be on the other side of Tucson in a blink of an eye.
      I think all the grey winter skies that just hang over a city for weeks are depressing. Tomorrow morning the sun will be out till the build up of clouds.

  5. Gorgeous there this time of year. Are you near Sedona?

    1. Well yes and no. Sedona is about a 4 hour drive BUT it depends what day and time you travel. Phoenix is a hell hole of traffic to drive through.

  7. Dark clouds hovered over us beginning at mid-afternoon today. We had a lot of thunder and lightning, but very little rain. Your photos are beautiful.

    Love,

    3. As we drove I saw nothing but the tops of green trees, then there would be an exit, I would see nothing but a small cut in the trees for a road and the a gas station. Never sure if there was more I would like to go back and have a chance to look around

    4. It definitely helps if you like trees...

      There are lovely lakes, too.

  9. Fabulous to be able to look out on such beautiful mountains. Our nearest ones are The Pyrenees between France and Spain; about 5 hours drive away.

  13. We are getting evening shower almost every day lately, which is good because it cools down a little bit (though it also get very humid!) Sky at the sunset is incredible! Such gorgeous golden colors!
    Love the smiling volcano :-) Have a happy new week!

  17. What a lovely set of photos you've taken.thehamish looking very fine in your previous post, I keep wondering how he has adjusted to life without Watson

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have become his Watson. It was always attached to me but now it is even more.
      His is adrift, Watson was his touchstone.
      We keep looking for a companion but haven't found one yet. I want a really oder shelter dog but it can not be so big.... and we would like a terrier. so it goes on

    2. We always go with pound pups. Hope you find one.

  18. Wow, Parsnip. These are very cool to see.

  19. What beautiful sky pix! It must be exciting to live in a place where the clouds are constantly changing and the view outside is so awesome!

    I hope you find Hamish a companion soon. When my sweet boy-cat died, the girl cat grieved herself to death. Yes, I really believe she did because Jackson had always been there with her.

    1. I know of dogs that have grieved so much they died. Sorry about your sweet babies.
      I know thehamish misses Watson so much, as we do, but he is adrift and is very clingy to us. But he is having fun and I wonder if I am projecting much on him.
      I wanted some old shelter dog but it has to be not much taller than him. Since the big dog attacked him he is wary of big dogs.
      I just found several shelters up in Phoenix that have mixed terriers so when thehamish recovers we will try to go up with a list and see if we can find a match.
      Have you found any cats to give a good home to or are you waiting ?
