darkness

“The wind began to moan in hollow murmurs, as the sun went down carrying glad day elsewhere; and a train of dull clouds coming up against it, menaced thunder and lightning. Large drops of rain soon began to fall, and, as the storm clouds came sailing onward, others supplied the void they left behind and spread over all the sky. Then was heard the low rumbling of distant thunder, then the lightning quivered, and then the darkness of an hour seemed to have gathered in an instant."
~ Charles Dickens ~

This is pretty amazing. I love the way the bands of rain are making their way across the land. Did they ever reach you?

Perfect, as always in that impressive text/photo combination exercise.

The desert seems to be an everlasting source of inspiration. So beautiful...

Thank you. Laurie, it's monsoon season and there is rarely a day when we don't see rain. :-) They did catch up to us.

Chris, I feel fortunate to live here.
