The Sky Tucson Reviews
The Sky in Tucson Aug 05, 2010
About this time of year (July – August), Tucson gets the monsoon rains. The clouds build quick, the rain pours hard and quick and the washes flood triggering flood alerts in and out of the city. I happen to be at the Country club on one such evening when the storm clouds began to build. They got pretty heavy, but the wind would not let it be. The sprinkles did not stop the tennis players from running around the courts. Mark's brother James had just arrived from San Antonio Texas. While Mark played a friendly Match, James, Desire and I decided to have dinner at the club house restaurant.
From the restaurant patio, we watched the sun begin to set, the rain sprinkled briskly and the night stars flickered in the distance. I had never really paid attention to the night sky during such weather. In Tucson where I have permanently resided over the last 3 years, it is uncommon to find people sitting outside when a storm is building. The monsoon storms come with lightening and thunder so much so that no one stays out unless they have a death wish. I was absolutely blown away by the sight of the sky as the sun glowed orange slowly turning the sky into an orange/red color. I could not help but take shots as the sun moved faster than usual over the horizon. On a clear day in Tucson the sunsets are nothing short of brilliant. I wonder, how many people get to watch the sun go down in their own cities?
Below are the few photographs of the Sky that I, took as I sat watching the sun go down on a stormy night in Tucson. I hope you enjoy then.
