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.

After the storm~Scenic Sunday and SOOC Sunday 122610

I took an early morning walk on Friday morning, after our series of storms left the desert and moved on to Texas. I was surprised to actually see steam coming off one of the ponds at the golf course (see bottom photo). There were a lot of ducks there and I tried to be quiet, but I scared all of them off! They circled above, showing me their disapproval! We had sunshine yesterday, although clouds moved in last night and I haven't peeked outside yet this morning. Scenic Sunday and SOOC Sunday for December 26, 2010. No, I'm NOT going to the after-Christmas sales, but I think I'll go for a walk a little later.

Green golf course contrasted by snow on mnt. range - your paradise is such a paradox!
