Red Showers 75922

Sonoran Desert

Rain showers turned red by the setting sun

Only the second time I've ever seen this phenomenon.

Also, note the rain isn't reaching the ground before it evaporates,
something I've only seen in the dry air of the American far west.

Photographed west of Tucson, Arizona USA.

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
1/30s f/8.0 at 66.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
