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.

Smoke tree~early morning~SkyWatch Friday 012910

I went for an early morning walk after our recent storms and saw the sun coming through this smoke tree, so I stopped to take a picture of it. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the rain drops clinging to the smoke tree branches. The desert smelled like creosote and other desert plants after all our rain...delightful smells! SkyWatch Friday for January 29, 2010.
