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.

Macro Monday 071612~owl feathers


I leaned in and took these photos of the soft downy feathers of the barn owl I found in the road last week, since I'll never have a chance to examine a living one... There were several of them in the yellow weeds along the road and I wanted to remember him or her.  Macro Monday for July 16, 2012

So soft. No wonder they fly so silently.

Beautiful shots, and it reminds me that I haven't done any macro photography in a while!
