After the desert rain
In yesterday’s post, I showed you the view outside our window. It poured for close to an hour, really poured. The ground is saturated from all the rain the past week, luckily it’s pretty sandy here. And, the water knows which way to go to get into the main washes.
Just before sunset, the rain stopped, the clouds started to lift, and the magic happened.
The colors, the clouds hugging the distant mountains, just beautiful and awe inspiring. This photo has been added to my store too.
This weeks special photo was taken at the same time
The creosote bush was all sparkly, and glowing in the late sun.
The next morning, the sky was clear blue, and everything was just…….shimmery. The bushes looked like they were dressed in diamonds.
I really tried to capture what the bushes look like, all full of raindrops. I just couldn’t quite do it though.
I found some small ground flowers. Tiny little leaves, with tiny little droplets.
There is a tiny magenta flower in the center of this one, getting ready to bloom.
And because macro is cool, here is the center of the above photo cropped in.
Today is also photo challenge day. The prompt for The Daily post is depth. The prompt for 52 Snapshots of life, is Create. This one photo, covers them both. The depth of the spider web, and the spider that created it.
We moved to a different spot yesterday. I had read last year about the Buenos Aries national wildlife refuge. The blog I read said it was great, and a very pretty place. Ummmm, not so much. It is super remote, we are the only people for miles. It’s a very different place than where we were. Grassland and bushes. It’s no doubt great when everything is green. So I don’t know, we may or may not stay. There are lots of birds here, and like I said, no people. Both alluring ideas.
