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.

Saturday sunrise~SOOC Sunday~081411

Hubby woke me up yesterday morning at...4:40 a.m. because we were having a terrific thunderstorm.  So, we just sat and watched the light show and listened to the thunder.  It finally moved to the west, toward the California border and at dawn I headed out around the villas for a morning walk.  And, this is what greeted me!  Ahhhh.....Arizona sunrises and sunsets!  We just don't get colors like this in my Southern California desert!  This is SOOC Sunday for August 14, 2011.  To visit SOOC Sunday, please go to:  http://www.murrieta365.com/

You are so right. I have often found that the sunrises and sunsets in Arizona deserts are much more spectacular than in the deserts of California. Strange.
