Sunset Sunday-An Approaching Storm in Austin, Texas

I met Maria through twitter and probably through Sunset Sunday itself. She often shares her thoughts on the series and this week I am delighted to have her share one of her own images- an Austin, Texas sunset. And in her unique style she just whipped up a quick Haiku to accompany her photo:

Cicadas’ songs rise

Lux hues exploding skyward 

Distant thunder pounds

Thanks Maria, and we are glad the rain finally came last year to Austin, Texas to relieve the heat and humidity. Happy Sunset Sunday to everyone, especially those waiting for some rain.

    Sunset Sunday is one of my weekly favorites; nature’s dramatic colors and artistic cloud formations are great inspiration – as are the travel posts found here.

    Great photo – just a touch of ground to anchor the sky – and then those billowing clouds.

    And the haiku is the perfect mirror.

      It seems like weather patterns are definitely changing some… but as with any changes… there certainly is a beauty to it… thanks for commenting. stay adventurous, Craig

    Interesting shot. Since I’ve never seen anything like it, my guess is that it’s uniquely Texan.

    • craig zabransky

      LOL… uniquely Texan… as some many things are. Stay Texan, Craig
