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.

Bougenvilla and palms~Weekend Reflections 012310











I went for a drive early yesterday morning during a break from the rain. Our desert has now had its yearly rainfall amount in the last 6 days. We've had over 4 inches! Our local mountains are COVERED with snow and it's still snowing up there! I found this large puddle of water and stopped to investigate and take these photos. Aren't the palms pretty? Weekend Reflections for January 23, 2010.

Nice series but the first shot wins the top slot.

Love how each photo steps back from the previous one! But my favourite is the first close and personal one!
