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.

Palm trees silhouette~~Sunday Stills for 060709


Some mornings, when I drive to school, I see incredible sunrises. This was one of those mornings. Look at all the jet trails! And, those tall palm trees, reaching toward the sky! I stopped at the bridge over the wash on Bob Hope Drive to take this pic. Sunday Stills challenge for June 7, 2009.

Very nice shot. I like all the detail in the sky and how it leads the eye into the palms. Nice framing, too!

What a perfect capture. I thought at first they were flowers and you were crouched down to take the photo - then I clicked to biggify the image and saw how wrong I was! (then I read...)
