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.

Tall grasses at the park~Sunday Stills Challenge~101611

For some reason, I drove down to the Palm Desert Civic Center Park yesterday morning after my morning walk, which was very uneventful.  All I saw were a couple of huge jackrabbits.  No hawks.  No ravens.  No coyotes.  Anyway, the sun was hitting these tall grasses and the ducks were lined up in the shade, taking a morning nap.  It was a quiet morning.  Sunday Stills Challenge for October 16, 2011.  The challenge was to find something in the foreground.

I love how the sun hits certain things in the morning and at sunset. Great to capture these moments in time!

The grasses look great right now. They seem to glow as the sun hits them a certain way.

We were out at the desert this weekend and noticed a distinct lack of critters... Even the birds were scarce.
