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.

Arizona afternoon~SkyWatch Friday~122311

As we were driving back to Scottsdale from Wickenburg the other afternoon, I stopped to take just a couple of photos of the saguaros in the late afternoon light.  Clouds were to the north of us, up toward Prescott.  But this area of the desert was clear and the light was golden.  SkyWatch Friday for December 22, 2011.  To visit SkyWatch Friday, please go to:   http://skyley.blogspot.com/
