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.

Sprinklers in the park




I went to the park early Sunday morning before I drove up the mountain highway to check on my horses.  A storm is moving into the desert and our mountains this week and I needed to buy pellets for them because I was nearly out of pellets and I always like them to have some extra calories during a storm.  They all get fed alfalfa twice a day, but I like to make sure they have an extra meal when it's cold.  And, believe me, it was COLD up in the mountains on Monday afternoon when I drove up to the feed store!  But, Sunday morning was crisp, clear, sunny, and delightful!  The park sprinklers came on while I was there (about 7 a.m.) and the ducks enjoyed the water as much as I did (just watching it!)

Nice shots! I always love the feeling of water reflecting light.

Hopefully the sprinklers didn't catch you by surprise.
