The golden light bathing this palm tree was right before a rain storm swept into the neighborhood. The storm was intense and short-lived and an hour later the sky was clear blue again. Interesting weather this time of year!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
