Light and Shadows

Thursday afternoon I wandered around the resort where we were staying in Tucson just basking in the light and shadows of late afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to be sure to catch a sunset and really just enjoyed the transitional light that the setting sun provided.

Early shadows on the Catalina mountains were stunning…

the concierge had pointed me to a little balcony perfect for sunset sighting…

    Saw where you and Tim were in Tucson. I just got back tonight from Phoenix. Kept Wyatt while Tommy and Julie went to San Diego for a meeting. Isn’t it gorgeous out there? And the weather is so nice, too! Glad you got such good pictures.
