Wickenburg desert photos
Your typist today is – MaryWe left our spot outside Wickenburg yesterday. We are in Phoenix for this week doing a show and selling our wares. (wish us luck) then heading to the Prescott, Sedona area. The spot we had was nice and quite, green, lots of flowers and birds, and some beautiful sunsets. My collection is growing. We were parked in such a way that every morning outside the window by my head, I could watch the sunrise over a small hill with saguaro on it. Very cool! This is a small collection of some of the photos I took in the week we were in the desert. These images are from Saturday evening. It rained almost all day, but the clouds lifted a little and gave us this giant bird. These are sunsets from 2 separate evenings. These first 2 photos are from the 24th. And these are from the 26th. The color palette in these sunsets, any sunsets really, is so inspiring to me. I am working on a project right now with all these colors and shapes. I’m pretty excited about it. We love to walk in the evening after dinner. And now that it’s light till 7pm, we have been able to walk most every night. This night, the colors and clouds were very nice. This is probably the best picture I got of vulture peak. The sun was hitting it just perfectly. We came across this old dried up saguaro. Only the ribs remained, bowing in the sunset. Of course I had to shoot these small white flowers. So delicate and beautiful. The sun went down behind the hill, making silhouettes of the saguaro. We may or may not find ourselves back here in the future. We stopped here as a pit top on our way to Phoenix. The thought of staying in Phoenix any longer than is absolutely necessary is horrid to me, so this was a great place to land and spend a week. I’m glad we got to see the desert in it’s green, spring stage. After all the rain, there will probably be tons of flowers. We won’t be here for them, but I’m sure we will see tons up by Sedona.
