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.

SkyWatch Friday 082109


Hubby and I are currently on vacation in the eastern Sierra Nevada range. We are enjoying a break from the desert heat! We have traveled to Mammoth Lakes, Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, and Mono Lake, as well as Bodie, CA. On this particular morning, we woke up early and drove out to Minaret Vista to see the sun hit them early morning. That's where hubby took a tumble and his Canon smashed into the rocks. It broke his polarizing filter and now he realizes that his lens is sticking, but otherwise he and the camera are doing just fine. (I think it damaged his ego more than anything else!). After that, we drove out to the Twin Lakes area and I caught this beautiful reflection on one of the lakes. SkyWatch Friday for August 21, 2009. By the way, it was so COLD there that morning, I went rummaging through the car looking for my mittens! It has been 28 and 33 degrees in Bodie while we have been here! What a nice change, eh?
