Sunset On A Cloudy Day















After a summer of eternal sunshine and only one rain storm, a cloudy day becomes such a treat and such an inspiration. And when the sun comes out right before sunset, the light becomes irresistible, and I hurry out to capture it, as it only lasts a moment.

  5. Contrast seems to be the key word here, I always enjoy the scenes nature provides us with. Lovely series of photos. Thanks for becoming a follower on my Book Review blog, much appreciated and I hope you will find it interesting.

  6. The contrasts are magnificent, Inger, absolutely magnificent! And those clouds are headed our way -- will look to see if they contrast so beautifully with our colorful trees.

    And thank you for your encouragement. A-Z is now #1 for regional books and ebooks and at #22 for memoirs. Yesterday was such an exciting day!

  9. Are your desert storms quick? Once we were visiting friends in Desert Hot Springs, CA and a quick shower came up. The raindrops would evaporate on my arm before it felt wet. (this was in September not Nov, though) That was a strange feeling.

    You've captured the starkness in the storm cloud and the warmth of the land in sunlight. Good eye.

  12. The light really is extraordinary, Inger. I love the shadows, too. I really do think the desert landscape is always beautiful, but I'm sure having it a little cooler affords more outdoor time. Drink in the cool! :-) Debra

  13. Verkligen härligt ljus du har där borta.
    Här är det gråväder mest men idag var det lite sol ändå.
    Ännu rätt varmt för årstiden men i natt verkar det gå mot noll. Var ett bra tag sedan vi hade det
