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.

Castle A, Montezuma's Castle




In addition to the large Montezuma's Castle (which has nothing to do with Montezuma and it doesn't look like a castle), the ruins of Castle A also still exist at the monument.  Castle A is where most of the other inhabitants lived at Montezuma's Castle.  You can actually walk up past them (but not on them!)  Hubby took these photos and I'm using his laptop this morning because Windows did updates on mine and it just takes too long to boot up!  Besides, it's always interesting for me to see spots from a different perspective! And, he has a 24-105 mm lens, while mine is 28-300 (with macro).  I can zoom in a lot more than he can, but he gets the wide angle perspective that I simply cannot get!

I love the team shots:) We have the same arrangements with the camera equipment. I do enjoy this area.

Beautiful photos. Kind of cool that between your husband and you, you have everything covered... from 24mm to 300mm!
