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.

"O" is for ocotillo. I took this photo one spring, at the Living Desert Reserve. Aren't the blossoms pretty? ABC Wednesday, October 28, 2009.

The blossoms look really nice, the thorns however do not!

I knew you would have this for "O". As soon as I clicked on your blog, I just knew it! And, what a beautiful capture it is! Very nice!

I have never seen such a bloom.

Yes, it is very pretty - and surprisingly delicate for a desert flower. The photo on your heading is spectacular.
