Right on Time

Tucson, AZ

*** Best view at original size ***

The start of our summer monsoon occurred today. We really need the moisture so this is
a most welcome scene. Here, the quiet of the evening sets in after the thunderstorm cells
provided a nice downpour in some areas. My favorite time of the year in the Sonoran Desert.
This is the view looking south past Tucson and on to the Santa Rita Mountains.

Below, the view looking north towards the Catalina Mountains and a mammatus sky.

Ominous looking sky in these wide shots Sam. We can feel the humidity here, but no chance of rain.

Beautiful effect with the fisheye. I remember the monsoons while living in NV. V

The beautify of these skies are superbly rendered on your two images. V.

Very dramatic wide-angle captures, both. I find it odd to think of monsoons in Arizona, but I'm sure you need to the water. V.

Great images, Sam. Yes, get it started. We need the moisture up here in Colorado, too. Excellent weather man views. V.

Hoping the monsoons bring relief and looking forward to your photos. Stay safe, though.
