This is just another example of "clouds that look like things."  Slightly enhanced photo taken on June 13, 2018 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles southwest of Phoenix.

And Peace was All He Said (Deep Blue) 


This is just another example of clouds that look like things - in this case, someone making the "peace" or "victory sign with their hand.   This slightly enhanced photo taken on June 13, 2018 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles southwest of Phoenix.

A beautiful array of rosy clouds on a delicate blue field of deepening hue like angels in disguise made me feel particularly blessed to live in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona where sunset skyscapes like this one are never too far away. (Taken in northwest Pinal County south of Phoenix, Arizona.)



“There’s a dragon in the flight path,” I said to myself when I looked up in the sky and saw this picture. These cirrus clouds were wisping around the contrail of a jet that had flown that way recently.   This is just one of the millions of dances I see on

Dragon in the Flight Path 


“There’s a dragon in the flight path,” I said to myself when I looked up in the sky and saw this picture. These cirrus clouds were wisping around the contrail of a jet that had flown that way recently. This is just one of the millions of dances I see on a regular basis where I live in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles southwest of Phoenix. It’s a magical place where Cloud Kachina is so prolific!

Is this just a weird shaped cloud with a weird shaped spot inside of it or is it the Blue Wizard casting a spell from the sky?  Whatever it is, I captured it in the summer of 2017 about 50 miles southwest of Phoenix in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.

Fascinating clouds formations appear over the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles south of Phoenix as the sun sets.  This arrangement made me think of a strange cosmic hand reaching upwards in the sky towards infinity.

On the Way to the Hand


A trail up out of a desert arroyo leads to the mysterious hand in the sky that appeared over the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles south of Phoenix one evening around sunset. This hand went through several colorful metamorphosis until it eventually dissipated into the darkening endless sky.

Like Clouds Slipping Through Fingers

Sunset Rain Clouds 


Some of the weirdest sunset clouds I’ve ever seen - looked like they were melting or something. I was told that the “brush strokes” were rain that was not hitting the ground. Photo was taken in northwestern Pinal County about 50 miles south of Phoenix in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.


Since joining the Cloud Appreciation Society, I've learned that this phenomenon is indeed rain not hitting the ground and is called "Virga."  

This is actually a collage of four photos taken on January 14, 2018 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona where sunsets in the winter time are extraordinarily weird and beautiful.  The darker strokes coming down out of the bands of red and orange I am told are

Sonoran Sun Spirits 


This is actually a collage of four photos taken on January 14, 2018 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona where sunsets in the winter time are extraordinarily weird and beautiful. The darker strokes coming down out of the bands of red and orange I am told are probably “rain” that is not reaching the ground.   At first I was quite skeptical of that assertion because of the lack of “rain” clouds in the sky. I just saw those exceptionally colorful bands reflecting the sunlight in vivid tones of red, orange, and pink. But as I pointed out in the previous photo, that assertion is correct.  While these photos were enhanced with a little saturation to bring out the definition, the darker shapes look like some kind of spirits dancing in the sky to me - hence the title of this photo collage.  Turns out these little "sun spirits" are called Virga in the scientific world.

Choros 


In ancient Greece, the choros was an early ritual dance in circular form, meant to induce an altered state of consciousness. It evoked a deep longing to merge with nature where one might learn the secrets of infinity. This particular glimpse of this special dance occurred in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona about 50 miles south of Phoenix. Who is dancing the dance? Cloud Kachina of course!

Flaming Hand


What would a sunset be without clouds? The silhouette of a strange Y-shaped cactus stands out on a hillside against the backdrop of bright orange and yellow clouds like a flaming hand in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. This is a winter sunset taken on Christmas Eve, 2017, about 50 miles southwest of Phoenix.

Submarine in the Sky 


This is one of those times during a Sonoran Desert sunset when the clouds make strange shapes that really stand out when artistically enhanced. This “flying submarine” was captured in a remote location of northwestern Pinal County south of Phoenix, Arizona on a spring evening.

Be it some force invisible to our eyes behind the scenes or merely chem trails combined with clouds, the ‘great spirit in the sky’ has the X factor for sure and broadcasts it for all to see it in no uncertain terms! This un-manipulated photograph was taken in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona in northwest Pinal County about 50 miles south of Phoenix in winter.

This is another strange Sonoran Desert cloud formation captured during a spring sunset that to me looked just like an angel flying through the clouds.  The rainbow filter adds an exceptionally magical dimension as well in my opinion.  This photo was taken

Angel in Rainbow 


This is another strange Sonoran Desert cloud formation captured during a spring sunset that to me looked just like an angel flying through the clouds. The rainbow filter adds an exceptionally magical dimension as well in my opinion.  I have many more versions and plan to publish them with the original in a blog post or separate collection.  These photos were taken in northwest Pinal County about 50 miles south of Phoenix in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.

Golden Eye Landing in the Desert 


The Sonoran Desert of Arizona produces some of the most spectacular sunsets in the winter, and this one was no exception. It reminded me of great golden eyed firebird in all its glory coming in for a landing over the desert hills. This photo was taken in northwestern Pinal County about 50 miles south of Phoenix, Arizona, USA and was not digitally manipulated in any way.
