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.

Running Springs and home~SkyWatch Friday~091611



 The afternoon we came back from Big Bear, we drove down through Running Springs and then through Highland.  I honestly don't remember the last time I'd been on that road.  I think it was when the kids were in high school, over 14 years ago~ Anyway, the San Bernardino/Highland area is always full of smog and on this afternoon, yup, there was smog, but I think it added a surreal layer to the view. And, it wasn't that much, just a touch. What do you think?  SkyWatch Friday for September 16, 2011. To see other views, please go to:  http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Pretty. I do like the smoggy effect, only when it's not "green"

Almost like islands in the sea.

I grew up in the LA area and the smog actually is better now than then. I remember getting sent home from school because it was so bad. We used to fly in and out of LA in a small plane. We would enter the smog layer over El Monte and I could swear I could smell the wonderful smell of Mexican food cooking. I guess smog is something you can learn to love, or at least live with. - Margy

Wonderful captures! I swear we must be passing each other on the roads... we go to many of the same places. Spend a lot of time in RS (actually, Green Valley Lake, which is right next store). Happy SkyWatch Friday!
