Rainbows over Marble Canyon during probably the last of the monsoon storms for this year.
Like the skyline of Manhattan, the sun sets behind the skyline of Zion National Park, Utah.

It’s all about The Light as far as I am concerned. Flat light is ugly and bright light is straining to the eye. But filtered light or varying light produces dramatic images as seen recently at Zion National Park, Utah.

I love the monsoon season in Northern Arizona. From July to early September, dramatic skies form above the parched desert landscape. The rains provide some relief from the scorching 100 degree(F) temperatures. Rainbows, large puffy clouds, violent storm cells and electricity filled up the Arizona Sky.
Images from the land of hoodoos, teepees, red rock, Ponderosa Pines, and glorious clouds!
The sky was on fire Thursday night.
This image I shot at Point Lobos at Carmel, California shows a distorted sun at sunset. The top of the solar disc is a mirage, an optical phenomenon in which distant objects may seem distorted. Mirages of this type occur at high latitudes when a warm layer of air rests on a cold layer. The light rays coming from an object (here the Sun) are bent down from the warm layer producing the distorted image. And by the way, the sun appears red at sunset because of particulates in the atmosphere (which the suns rays must travel through at sunset) cause blue light to scatter and leaving the sun red.
