We drove to Las Cruces, NM, yesterday to visit with our friends Phil and Marsha, and to indulge in some good Mexican food at La Posta. The weather forecast said we would have 70% chance of precipitation, but we were not holding our breath as showers here are very localized. But this was not monsoon related: it was Tropical Depression Georgette.
This morning was different, time-wise, and both Dan and I went out with our respective cameras. I took my best shot on the walk, Dan took his from the backyard. Clouds are so dramatic, and my photo reminds me of Jacob van Ruysdael, a Dutch painter who was best at rendering cloudy skies. I took the picture of the turkey vulture warming its wings on my way to Apple Annie's to pick more peaches. It's almost October!
