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.

Desert fence and palm~Friday's Fences~012513

Desert fences aren't usually made of wood.  The heat just dries them out and they disintegrate over time.  This fence, which contains a herd of cattle, is in Indio, CA, off Dillon Road.  It does a good job because I never see the cattle outside of it.  Instead, they enjoy the shade of the palms and their water trough.  Friday's Fences for January 25, 2013.  Temperature here today~72 degrees!   :-)   To visit Friday's Fences, please go to:    http://lifeaccordingtojanandjer.blogspot.com/

I'm really enjoying your header photo. Good work! Timing, focus, framing, all came together. I'm just an artist without much of a professional approach to photography, but I do know how to look and see. I won't be making other comments here, because I don't like "word verification" which is really a pain in the ...! I prefer moderation for my blogs.

I never thought of how a hot, dry climate could affect the wood. Here we have the cold and snow which is a different kind of problem. I love seeing your blue skies Cheryl Ann.. Michelle

All the palm trees are so pretty! What do the cattle feed on in the desert? I am assuming they bring water to the cattle? I would never had thought about having cattle there. Seems like it would mean instant steak and cowhide!

It was 79 yesterday! Today a little cooler, with a bit of rain. Love this beautiful shot!

Hadn't thought about the effects of the dry heat on wood fences.
