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.

Tuolumne Meadows logs~Nature Notes~071411





I'm always looking for interesting logs in my photos and when hubby and I stopped at Tuolumne Meadows over the July 4 weekend, we found a spot with several of them. I walked over to it and marveled at the views of the meadow. There were deer grazing nearby and a lot of water was standing in the meadow and running in the river. We arrived early in the morning (about 7 a.m.) before the crowds and it was still quiet and peaceful. I'm glad we got up at 4 a.m. that morning and drove to Yosemite to see all her beauty.

Nice shots....I had a similiar shoot back in April. Logs or dead trees have some really interesting forms in the wild. That looks like a beautiful place to visit!

Such interesting shapes and textures. And, it looks like the air is crystal clear.
