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.

Palm Desert park pond~Sunday Stills Challenge~102013

I know it's a stretch, but all I have here in town that even resembles a shoreline is our local park.  It is a very beautiful setting, however.  I often go there and take photos.  I see that the city has now installed pellet dispensers for duck food (25 cents a pop) and we are ONLY allowed to feed them the city's pellets...HA~And, no, the fisherman isn't real-he is a statue!  In fact, there are quite a few statutes in the park.  I went a couple of weeks ago because this weekend I'm exhausted.  Between fighting a sore throat and hyper kids, I haven't even gone outdoors for two days!  Maybe today I'll venture outside?  Sunday Stills Challenge, "shorelines" for October 20, 2013.

This pond certainly fits the challenge well. Fun statue too.
I'm sure the pellets are healthier for the ducks than other things they've been fed. Bread certainly isn't good for them. :-)

oh I miss the duck pond! Didn't go to see it last time I went home.
