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.

Alabama Hills and clouds~SkyWatch Friday 102210


When we drove home from the Sierras last weekend, we stopped in Lone Pine and drove out to the Alabama Hills. The Sierras were nearly totally hidden by clouds and they looked so mysterious, especially with the rocks of the Alabama Hills in the foreground. SkyWatch Friday for October 22, 2010.

I wanted to stop there too, but, we didn't. I have seen some photos of this place at sunset, etc; where the scene was shot through "windows" or holes in the rocks. I would love to wander around and find those places to give those kinds of shots a try...maybe in the spring??? We must have been in the Lone Pine area about 11 a.m. on Monday...bet we were very close together on 395.

The "backside of the Sierras" is an awesome place for photography! You have captured it well. Nice photo!
Thanks!
