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.

Desert blooms~Nature Notes~041312


I forgot that I had some photos on my Nikon, so I uploaded them this morning and found this one of a brittle bush when they were in full bloom.  Unfortunately, their prime blooming time has come and gone and now the bushes are loving their brilliant colors.  But, as these shrubs lose their blooms, the palo verdes are now in full bloom, once again dotting our desert landscape with yellows.  Nature Notes for April 13, 2012.

Great shots of how the desert wind works on nature. Here in our mountain desert it has snowed for two days and we're in a winter wonderland.
