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.

Crow at mission San Juan Capistrano~Wild Bird Wednesday~121113

Nothing exotic here, just a crow, but when you combine the crow with mission San Juan Capistrano, VIOLA!  A beautiful photo (at least I think so)...what do you think?  HA!  Wild Bird Wednesday for December 11, 2013.  To visit Wild Bird Wednesday, please go to:  http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com/  Yes, this is the mission famous for the swallows.  We actually saw several swallow nests up on the wall of one building this time.

You're right! The crow with the background is really neat! But the one of him airborne is beautiful also!

Cool shots of the crow with the mission. Is this same place famous for the swallows? I have been there years ago. Have a happy week!
