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.

Whitewater Canyon Preserve windows~Window Views and Doors, Too 011311











There is a beautiful log building, the ranger station/visitor center up at the Whitewater Canyon Preserve and when I was there, I was fascinated by its windows. Aren't they gorgeous? That's an outside photo of it on top, but inside there are exhibits, meeting tables, and wooden chairs. It's a great place to relax and enjoy the view! Below the building are the fish ponds, full of trout. No, not for fishing!!! No fishing is allowed here as it is the hatchery. Toddlers like to feed the trout and as I sat looking at one pond, a group of them were being fed by a youngster whose parents were right there with him! The preserve is open daily from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Hubby and I would love to return right after a snow storm, but the temps this next week will be in the mid 70's!!! Window Views and Doors, Too for January 13, 2011.

the light coming in from the slats in the window shades is much nicer than direct full on sunlight.

Hi
sarebbe bello visitare questo centro e godersi la vista in questo casa.
Buona serata.

What lovely shadows and rays of sunlight are cast by those windows.

Reminiscent of Wright's architecture, no?
