The Missing Sky

The monsoon does not make for the most colorful of sunsets. A few have slipped in on mostly sunny days if the torrential afternoon downpours from thunderstorms have passed in time.

From some space and time distortion,

The sun has slid so far north without a daily visual for verification that it has moved completely out of the view and behind the trees on the other side.

The trees themselves are closing in the narrow gap from what must be a spring of mega wet growth.

A monsoon sunset offers only a faint pink glow.

Beautiful photos. Hopefully the monsoon dumps just enough rain to keep everything fresh.

Still so beautiful. I love the view when the fog is lower than the mountains. We have had none of that rain, in fact watering the newly planted and divided has to be done daily. There must be a system stuck in the mountains. Hope you get to garden soon.

It's still lovely Christopher...and what a record you have of the sun's movement across the sky. It would make a lovely series. We need rain~~after a record amount of rainfall this spring, it is starting to dry up. Except the humidity...gail

Grace we got plenty rain for sure.

Frances and Gail, I don't understand how y'all aren't getting any of this rain. It is all coming out of Tennessee.

Oh, how I envy you such evenings! The thermometer in my courtyard shows a high of 102 for the second day in a row.
