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 morning~SkyWatch Friday 081409


I took this photo one morning last spring when we had monsoonal clouds. The clouds are back today. We haven't had any measureable rain all summer and July and August are our monsoon months. Our mountains have had rain, but we haven't had any here in our desert. SkyWatch Friday for August 14, 2009. Have a great weekend!

You really captured a moody sky. It gave me goosebumps when I first looked at it. Nice picture. Thanks for sharing.

Great photo! Thanks for sharing. I took a photo much like this in the Everglades many years ago ... must go find it!

Looks rather ominous! Hope you get some rain...if that's what you need. We have a couple of grass fires burning here, so the skies are hazy but we are having some nice sunsets...
