After the rain the sun….. but this it what it can look like before the rain. A mixture of distant rain and haboob. We have a storm forecast for today – just enough to wash the air and muddy the ground. But it’s not here yet…. (oh please, oh please, one more storm this winter…..)
Umber sunset is painted from one of the most unusually colored skies I’ve ever seen. A dust storm created a dark brown swirling foreground, (rather than the usual beige-out we get when we get a haboob coming through), with creamy gold clouds poking through at the back. I also created a refractured watercolor from this scene. Sadly the 10′ tall creosote bush that stars in the bottom corner is no longer there, it was uprooted when George’s house was built.
