Last evening I noticed that the clouds were varied and had interesting shapes. I thought it might make for a lovely sunset. I grabbed my camera and went outside before the colors started changing. The first photo is facing east as the setting sun turns the Rincon Mountains pink and then creeps up to tinge the cloud above it. As I continued facing east the sky began changing and the white cumulus clouds turned gold as the darker clouds began turning pink.
A different area of the sky had it's own colors. To the south the cumulus clouds took on a lovely rosy glow. As the sun set I faced the west and took the last photo.
At last I was able to get the red sunset as the grand finale.
Tucson is surrounded by mountains. The Rincons (first photo) are east, the Catalinas (with a ski slide) are North, the Tucson mountains are west and the Santa Ritas are south. It makes for great hiking trails for those who are able and so inclined.
Sunsets and mountains are just two of the reasons I love living in Arizona.
