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.

Ponds and reflections~That's My World 121410



One day I missed my morning walk and I decided to do it in the afternoon instead. I'm pleased that I did! The reflections on the ponds in the golf course were incredible! It was deserted and I had one whole course completely to myself! But, there were a couple of cattle egrets there and some ducks too. If you click on the bottom photo, you can see one of the egrets near the edge of the water. I plan on taking more afternoon walks! It's a great way to unwind after a long day! That's My World for Tuesday, December 14, 2010.

I used to live near a golf course in Houston suburb. I used to take early morning walks all the time on them. They are great places to stroll.

the ponds are beautiful and so still.

oh, so beautiful! I didn't know the egrets were called "cattle" egrets. But, I have seen them sitting on the backs of cattle so I am guessing that is how they got their name???
