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.

"L" is for leaves~ABC Wednesday 100610
















I took these photos of the maple trees up at the horse ranch where I board my horses. I'm watching their leaves turn various fall colors. It's been interesting to document this yearly occurrance because in the desert, we don't really see the seasons change like other places. Our local mountains do indeed take part in this seasonal rite of passage and last weekend I saw several ranches with their fall decorations already out for people to enjoy! ABC Wednesday for October 6, 2010. Are the leaves changing colors where you live?

The variety of colors in these pictures is stunning.

your leaves are not turning gold yet? For us here in New Zealand, a lot of the trees are still barren.
