A Monsoon Sunset (August 26, 2014) — Images by kenne (Click on any of the images for a larger view in a slideshow format.)

By sunset,

rain clouds are breaking up

allowing the sunlight

to resonate

in harmonic colors

produced by

dark cloud worriors


soft cloud angels

in an energetic

capoeira dance

to Mas Que Nada,

celebrating days end.

A desert sunrise

Is blocked by high and low clouds,

A jungle out there.

Hot Dry Temps Bring On The Sonoran Monsoon?   5 comments

Box Camp Trail 06-28-13
View south over Tucson from the Box Camp trail (approximately 7,500′ in the low 80’s) in the Santa Catalina Mountains as triple digit temperatures show signs of pulling moisture from the south.  Maybe the monsoon is on the way — let’s hope.

When Images Are Created, The Words Follow   1 comment

Misty clouds roll into the canyons

Slowly transforming the horizon

Bringing everything closer together

Turning down the mid-morning lights.

Cloud-drops by chance fall

Through the forest canopy

Kissing soft paddles

Released only by the breeze.

Back from the mountain hike

Monsoon clouds darken

As storms build

Over hiking memories.

Rain In The Desert   Leave a comment

Yesterday, southern Arizona had heavy monsoon rains, some damaging with strong winds downing trees. For us, the winds were relatively calm with a rain fall of 1 3/4 inches of rain in less than an hour, causing street flooding throughout the area. Arizona has a stupid-driver law– wonder how many people stalled out in the flash flood areas and got tickets?
