The Beauty of Up

Clouds and Sunsets Photographed by Alan Harris

This photographic essay, entitled The Beauty of Up, is dedicated to what can happen in a sky. It is composed of a four-part chronological display of photographs taken of clouds and sunsets seen from Tucson during the summer of 2003. Below you will find links to the beginning of each slide show, along with miniatures of its photos, any of which can be clicked for immediate viewing. I hope these images will leave you with the feeling that you've been somewhere. —A.H.
