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.

SOOC Sunday 100310


I woke up early yesterday morning. I had an all-day class to attend, and the sunrise was beautiful and I wanted to head out with my camera. It was raining on and off, sometimes gently and sometimes hard, so taking photos was difficult. I found a spot to take some sunrise photos, then I drove out Washington Avenue toward Thousand Palms Canyon. I stopped here to take this photo. There is a turnout where you can park and walk a ways and that is one of my favorite spots. The sun was just barely poking through all the clouds, so it is still fairly dark. This is "SOOC", straight out of the camera, no tweeking! SOOC for October 3, 2010.

If you hadn't told me it was a sunrise I would have thought it was dusk.

I love that area around Thousand Palms Canyon. We had the same type of rain here. Yesterday was brutal hot and humid.
