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 rainbow~SkyWatch Friday~122812

We've had a couple of days here in the valley with light rain and I headed out Wednesday to see the rainbows.  It was misting at about 1,000 feet up toward Highway 74 and I stopped to take a picture of the rainbow and ocotillo.  Higher up in the mountains, it was POURING!  SkyWatch Friday for 122812.  To visit SWF, please go to:  http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Beautiful shots. I remember being fascinated by the ocotillo when I first saw it on our trip to Arizona. Happy New Year!

Wow, what a stunning shot, getting a rainbow and ocotillo in the same shot. I think I see a nice red barrel as well.
