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.

Hawk~World Bird Wednesday~071112

This guy actually let me stop my car, hop out, and snap his photo!  Most of the hawks up by the horse ranch in our local mountains aren't so friendly.  They usually take off when I get out of the car.  I'm learning how difficult it is to take photos of birds!  World Bird Wednesday for July 11, 2012.  To visit World Bird Wednesday, please go to:    http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/

Hi there – that’s a nice shot. Normally I only have to think about getting out of the car and the hawks fly off!

I thought I’d let you know that I stepped into the void caused by Springmans decision to close down World Bird Wednesday by setting up Wild Bird Wednesday (!) on my photoblog at Paying Ready Attention – Photo Gallery.
