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.

Ravens again~SkyWatch Friday~April 15, 2011

I often see ravens on my morning walks, but I don't always have the time to stop and take photos of them. But, on this morning, there were two of them who played tag with me. Wherever I walked, they landed. Unfortunately, because it wasn't very light, and I was using my zoom lens, this was one of the only photos to come out. So, this morning, I left the camera behind and walked for 20 minutes, just without it. I felt really part of me was missing! But, I only had a 25 minute window to do a 20 minute walk, so I didn't want to lose a minute! However, with the weekend and a full week off school, I'll have plenty of time to walk next week! SkyWatch Friday for April 15, 2011. To see other participants, please visit:

Seems when I don't have my camera is when I See more. But I do feel rather naked.

Like the sloping layers of the mountain in your header photo. But I will only go alone, because my husband will give a a scientific lecture if we went together.

I watched three different raptors drifting aloft on thermals this week--with no camera at hand to capture it all. Sometimes it's almost better not to have one, because you can focus on the event rather than the photography. Glad you had something on hand for this, though.

I do envy your walking place--I'd have to drive for miles to see anything but houses. Sigh.
