Let the beauty we love be what we do. ~Rumi ~

I wanted to share an inspiring phenomena that happens out here in the West. In meteorology, Virga is an observable streak or shaft of precipitation falling from a cloud that evaporates before reaching the ground. (from Wikipedia).

I find these delicate tendrils so fascinating, they are the opposite of the weather I grew up with in the deep south of very high humidity and torrential downpours. Because our climate is so dry in New Mexico we see everything with greater clarity and can watch a panorama of weather effects moving across vast amounts of space.

You really have to be in the right place at the right time to catch them. My favorites are from the West Texas plains and Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico. In this slide show are some of my inspiration photos and paintings.
