SkyWatch: Mountain Sunset

dscf0450-1-copy
This mountain sunset photo was taken from a moving car on the highway from Madinah to Jeddah.  I grew up in mountainous Arizona, and since Jeddah is fairly flat, I was spellbound by the mountains on the drive up to Madinah and back. I really miss the gorgeous Arizona sunsets …

    Love the colours in the photo, Happy SWF and Happy 2009 to you and your family.

    Beautiful picture! Since you and I lived in the same Arizona town, Douglas, I know exactly what you mean about missing the mountains. Arkansas, where we now live, is also breath-takingingly beautiful with lots of mountains but not the stark reality of the desert southwest. A definite contrast of colors and hues.

    Happy New Year!

  15. Beautiful photo. I can understand why you might miss the Arizona mountains as they are gorgeous. But this is very pretty too.

  16. What an interesting journey you have made from the desert of Arizona to the desert of Saudi Arabia. You really should write a book about this.
