After the Storm

This past week has been very gray and rainy culminating in a storm on Thursday that dumped a record amount of rain and snow over Arizona's normally dry landscape. After several days of rain, we are treated to these large cotton-like islands floating in the sky over Camelback Mountain.

That's a pretty cool general view. I'm glad your stormy weather is over, what I wouldn't give to have a bit of blue sky too. Have a great Sunday!

Beautiful sky yesterday. I am glad the rain stopped for all the people in the Phoenix area for the 4 big classic car auctions in Scottsdale this week.

It wasn't just that the sky was clear - the air was clean and crisp. It was a beautiful day. Great picture of Camelback Mtn.

This is a gorgeous picture. You can tell just by looking at it that it was a perfect day to be outside.

So nice to see the mountain. I saw the movie and thought it looked like lovely countryside. You have confirmed how lovely it is

We're all reveling in post-storm snowy mountain pictures here in the San Gabriel Valley! Isn't it nice when we get these kinds of beautiful vistas after yucky weather?

I love this shot, Sharon. The desert is so pretty with clouds hovering above.

This is lovely, Sharon! So sharp and such beautiful light! Glad to know storms are over; it seems the sun will shine the whole week here! :-)

The clouds are huge and I bet they were also pretty. At least they are in the photo.

A lovely scene, Sharon. I don't remember this place; probably many years after my time. I wondered if those people were fishing, or just sitting by the water meditating?
