Pink Fire in the Sky

1. DSC_0805-kab The Last Sunset of Monsoon 2012 on September 13

As a single thundercloud moved over the valley I happened to go out onto my balcony and saw this! I quickly grabbed my camera and started snapping. The sky looked as if it were on aflame with the color pink! It was brief, but breathtaking while it lasted. This is just one of the perks of being back in Tucson!

Skywatch Friday!


  1. Especially love that top photo-quite the striking image!

  2. Lovely colors and skies, Kathie! Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!

  3. WOWWOW!! those are gorgeous skies!!!!!
    the first & second pictures are breath taking...
    and the lavender sky...awesome shots!!!!!

  4. Amazing!! Your thumbnail photo on the SkyWatch Friday page really caught my eye - with those three bands of color, it looked like a flag! I've never seen a sunset quite like it!

    And I love the soft lavender cloud that started it all - what a contrast to the bold coloring the sky took on as the sun set!

  5. Now that is a SkyWatch photo is I've ever seen one!

  6. Very beautiful colors! Glad you were able to capture this for us.

  7. Those are very dramatic and beautiful skies, thanks for sharing.

  8. Beautiful, striking photos Kathie, wow!

  9. Hi Kathie

    What a dramatic sky. Just lovely.


  10. Thanks everyone! Believe me, it took my breath away when I saw it! I'm so glad I had my camera nearby because it didn't last for long!

  11. Kathie, we're glad you had your camera with you too! That was a sky most definitely worth sharing! (And it seems to me that the really breathtaking skies are usually the most fleeting!)

    In answer to your question, I lived in Kennebunk during my last three years of high school. My dad is a native New Englander, my mother a Montana native, so I've always had my heart in both New England and the Rockies. Where in Maine did you live?


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
