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.

Thunderheads over the valley~~SkyWatch Friday for June 12, 2009
















Last week our skies were clouded by massive thunderheads. This week, we have below-normal temperatures in the mid-80's, which is unheardof here in our desert. Usually by now we are in the high 90's to low 100's. I took advantage of the visiting thunderheads and ran outdoors with my camera! Here are some samples. SkyWatch Friday, June 12, 2009.

Beautiful series of photos, but that last shot is my favorite! I love photos like that where the clouds are partially hiding the sun & there's sun rays beaming down! Gorgeous!

Beautiful photos of these amazing thunderhead cloud formations. We sure have had strange weather this year in So Cal haven't we? I love the blooming cactus in your header ... finally planted a few cactus plants in my yard where nothing else seems to grow due to dryness. Hopefully they won't realize the ocean is less than two blocks away ;--)
