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.

Just some random photos

Today I'm just posting some random shots from my morning walk.  I forgot I had these on my camera (the Nikon), since I haven't been using it much lately.  I've been using and learning HOW to use the Canon.  What a mind-shift!  The Canon is much easier to use and adjust the settings, but it just doesn't have the clarity of color that the Nikon has.  If you want to see the difference in the two cameras, just go on over to my other blog, Deep Canyon, at:  and take a look at the last two posts.  The newest one shows yucca blossoms which I took with the Nikon.  The previous one shows the same blossoms, but I took those with the Canon.  Please let me know which you prefer.  Anyway, back to this post...I had these photos on my Nikon since March and I realized that I needed to upload them.  We're having 90 plus degree weather here this week and temps should hit the 100's by the weekend, so the mornings are pretty warm now.  I walked yesterday morning and saw lots of cottontails and jackrabbits out running around on their morning errands and during their feeding.  No clouds.  NONE.  Period.  I do see a few today, so I need to get ready and head for the door!

I love the last photo. Our temps are going to be high this weekend, too. Summer's coming!

Ya know I'm a Nikon fan, but often it is the lens that makes or breaks the picture. Have you tried a different lens on that Canon?
