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.

Table grape fences~Friday Fences~120911
I drove out toward the table grape vineyards near my school this morning to take some photos of the smudge pots at work. Along the way, I saw the table grapes quietly standing away from the smoke, in the morning sunlight. To me, grapes are always a calming scene. They stand quietly and regally, their sugar concentrating on the grapes which I didn't even see on them this morning. I plan to return tomorrow morning once again as we've had nights of freezing temps here in the Coachella Valley. These table grapes, when mature, will be shipped all over California and the country, but for now they are sleeping. These are the well, not fences, but wires which hold them up. Friday Fences for December 9, 2011. To visit Friday Fences, please go to: http://lifeaccordingtojanandjer.blogspot.com/
