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.

Garden gate~Whimsical Windows and Delirious Doors~022012

I've always loved this garden gate at the Living Desert Reserve and I've photographed it many times.  Yesterday it was open and the shade from the trees was evident.  Doesn't this gate just invite you to step into the garden?  I did and bought two desert willows for my front yard!  WWDD for February 20, 2012.  To visit WWDD, please go to this link:   http://iwishiwereaphotographer.blogspot.com/2012/02/whimsical-windows-delirious-doors-12.html

Oh, I can see why you like that gate, it's a real charmer! And with plants to buy inside, I definitely wouldn't be able to resist :)

Calling by as another participant in WWDD, love your choice for the meme.

That is a stylish gate - it feels like a door to the inside, instead leading us to an outdoor place that is separate and quieter than the place from which we entered...

It's definitely a welcoming sight!

Lovely shot! I think I might sail a boat to California and steal that gate, it is so romantic!

Yes, I want to step right through that door into an enchanted landscape!
