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.

Early morning light~SkyWatch Friday~May 20, 2011

Very early one morning last weekend, I went for a walk and in Scottsdale, the sun was just coming up over the horizon. I found an ocotillo to photograph in the morning light. SkyWatch Friday for May 20, 2011. To see other skywatchers, please go to:

Do I see ocotillo before my eyes?


A little birdie told me,
Although I don’t know why,
That if I were to look up,
Way up into the sky,
I’d see some wondrous planets,
The moon and sun and stars –
There before my very eyes
Blazed Jupiter and Mars!
