A Winter Wonderland, in the Desert
No, it didn’t snow in the desert, not here anyway. But it was rainy and foggy this morning and while I was walking through the desert taking photos it seemed like A Winter Wonderland, in the Desert.
We have been busy this last few weeks. Last weekend, and the weekend before we had art shows. The first was not so great, but last weekend was really good. Thankfully. On Monday we landed in one of our favorite desert campgrounds, and spent a couple of nights there. We don’t normally like, or stay in campgrounds, but this one is an exception. Tuesday was rainy and drizzly all day, and Wednesday morning was awesome with fog and moisture everywhere.
When the sun came up enough, I was out wandering the desert taking photos.
Fog in the desert is not very common, as you can imagine. So the opportunity for cool and different photos was something not to miss.
Just as I thought it was going to clear, it would sock in again.
But this, this was totally amazing. I started seeing dew covered spiderwebs in the bushes, and cactus. Either I have never been able to see them before, or the spiders came out in the rain. Either way, what a treat!
The refracted light was perfect for highlighting these tiny webs.
There was a brief mist rainbow arch, thing.
A few flowers with dew drops.
And an abundance of dew drops caught in the cholla cactus spines.
Mornings like that are rare, and special and need to be captured and saved. The desert is such an ever changing place. One that is full of beauty.
