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.

Monsoon sunset~SkyWatch Friday~080312


Sometimes it's good to realize that I only have to go outside my front door to see some spectacular sunsets!  This sky was here in the desert during our monsoon visit this past week.  The clouds have moved on, but there are still some lingering thunderheads every afternoon.  But nothing like this!  SkyWatch Friday for August 3, 2012.  To visit SkyWatch Friday, please go to:   http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Wondrous images, the palm trees could be mistaken for feather dusters, busy cleaning the air.
