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.

sunrise~Straight Out of the Camera Sunday~090510


I had to drop hubby off at work early this morning (6:00 a.m.) at the Marriott, so I decided to stay and take some photos of the sunrise from there. It was another crisp, clear morning here in the desert. There was a flock of cattle eagrets that flew overhead, but...my camera's battery died and I didn't get any photos of them! However, I did get this photo of the morning light over one of their ponds. Straight Out of the Camera Sunday for September 5, 2010. Yes, I'm home now charging up my battery!

Great capture. Early morning is one of my favorite parts of the day. (BTW, we were staying there when the Northridge quake hit. Something you never forget.)

I love that you captured the peacefulness of the morning. Very nice. Oh, and that it made getting up early worth it!
