Sunset without clouds to enhance it is unremarkable. There is really not much to see but a ball of fire going down and dropping below the horizon. Add some clouds and it is always a magnificent work of art.
When my daughter was a little girl, we lived in California and we used to go hang out on the Pacific Coast Highway to watch the sun set. It was something, I think, we both enjoyed. We knew it was time to leave and go home when we heard the “Sizzle” of the sun hitting the water. I miss watching the sunset over the ocean.
We were driving along the service road heading south. The scenery was spectacular, the clouds were spectacular and the volcanoes were majestic.
One of my favorite things about Albuquerque and I guess all places with mountains …. is when the clouds make shadows on the mountains. This is the Sandia Mountains and they border Albuquerque’s east side. For the past few days the clouds have been doing a spectacular job of making shadows on the mountains.
Just as the sun started setting and right before the mountain turned pink.
It’s only January. We had a few really warm beautiful days and now there’s buds on the Mulberry tree. I have never seen this tree bud like this before March. This tree tries to kill me every year so I am not looking forward to an early allergy season.
When I drove south on Carlisle today the helicopter was parked in its spot. When I was driving back north on Carlisle a while later it was landing.
Interesting sculpture. I would never think to make a “creation” out of old car doors. There are people who would argue that this is not art. I think they are sadly mistaken!
This plane was probably heading for Kirtland Air Force Base but that is just speculation on my part. Where ever it was going it was a cool plane.
Yesterday’s sky and the storm did not live up to what these clouds seemed to be predicting.
It was a spectacular storm that was brewing here. It rained, hailed and the wind blew like it had somewhere to go in a big fat hurry.
