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.

Ocotillo and clouds in the morning~Nature Notes~101812

Doesn't this almost look like a painting?  I spotted the unusual cloud on my way to work one morning last week and I pulled over.  When I did, I spotted the ocotillo and stopped right there to snap a couple of photos before traffic came and ran me over!   We've had clear skies ever since, but this weekend we may get some clouds from hurricane Paul.  I always enjoy the texture of clouds in the desert, don't you?  Nature Notes for October 18, 2012.  To visit Nature Notes, please go to:
