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.

More wildflowers


I like this photo because it's unusual to see any kind of natural wood here in our desert. And, in the background is Mt. San Jacinto, towering above Palm Springs, CA. It was a warm afternoon when I took this photo, but not too warm. Soon our wildflowers will disappear. Apparently this weekend, they are at their peak.

This is a well-composed image. I like it.

I have been noticing the temperature has been gradually climbing out there so I would imagine the wildflowers will have numbered days left. This photo is so beautifully composed. The mountains and the piece of wood really enhance the beauty of the scattered wildflowers. Enjoy them while they last! I would love to see them one last time...
