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.

Beauty and the beast~~Sunday Stills Challenge~042912
This is literally about beauty and the beast. I was out for' my morning walk Friday morning. I didn't have either my Canon or Nikon with me, but I always do carry my little Nikon Coolpix in my purse (just in case...). I remember getting to the front door and thinking, "Do I REALLY need a big camera today?" and decided that since there weren't any clouds that morning, I would leave without either one. A crew of tree trimmers was out gunning their truck engines at the golf club, so I decided to walk around the perimeter the opposite direction of my usual morning walk. I was busy looking at all the footprints in the sand when I stopped and looked beside me and there he was...a COYOTE! He stood and looked at me. I stood and looked at him and slowly got out the little Coolpix and got a few photos of him. He looked well-fed and wasn't afraid of me (or agressive), so we just stood and watched each other. He finally moved off further into the bushes. He was probably 10 feet away from me when I first spotted him. From now on, I'll remember to scour the bushes along the dirt road! Sunday Stills Challenge for April 29, 2012. Is he a beauty or a beast? I think he was a beauty! To visit Sunday Stills Challenge, please go to: http://sundaystills.wordpress.com/
