Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

front gate




Sometimes I just drive around town looking for interesting photos. On this winter afternoon, I found this front gate. Isn't it beautiful? I like the afternoon shadows on the wall, too.
On a happy note, the wind storm that came through on Sunday, which knocked over a large portion of our front fence and also thrashed my sunflowers, is GONE! I went out yesterday afternoon, temporarily fixed the fence, and cut out two dead (huge) sunflowers and tied up the others. After a good watering, it looks like they will survive. Two are blooming and I was afraid that they had been damaged, but they were fine!

I like the curved shapes of the steps, top of wall, and boulders that echo the shape of the house's arched window and vent.
