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.

Monsoon clouds~That's My World 082509




Tis the season of monsoon clouds. Giant, puffy thunderheads develop in the afternoons over our desert and the high desert of the eastern Sierra. I actually took these photos outside of Bishop, CA one afternoon during our week-long vacation. About an hour later, rain was falling in different locations all along the Sierra. That's My World for Tuesday, August 25, 2009.

See, I wouldn't know these are monsoon clouds - they look like regular clouds to me. Lovely photos.

You must be as glad to get the rain as we are here.
