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.
Fins, feathers, and fur~ Sunday Stills Challenge for November 15, 2009. The fins were the hardest as we don't have a lot of fish here in our desert. BUT...we do have a trout farm nearby, in Whitewater, CA.
