Desert Life, Wild and Otherwise
I’ve heard people say over the years that the desert is bare, lifeless, and ugly. I find that to be 100% not true. Sure, some places aren’t so fabulous, but most are. You can find Desert Life, Wild and Otherwise, most anywhere.
The other day we went in search of the burros again. I guess we used up all our good burro mojo last week because we only saw these guys. I got some great photos though.
It was however roadrunner day. We saw several, and I was actually able to get shots of this guy. Usually they are quite literally running across the road, but this one was a tad more cooperative.
They are so funny when they run, and fast. The cartoon was not a lie.
This shot is a perfect example of missed focus, but I really like the story it tells.
Later in the day we saw these desert bighorn sheep. I was surprised actually, I had no idea there was bighorn sheep in the area we were in. They were lighter than the sheep we normally find, and I think it’s because they were in California. Bleached blonde ya know. Lol.
They were watching something on the other side of the hill that we couldn’t see. They didn’t hang around for too long.
And then there is us, and the dogs. The non wildlife in the desert.
That little speck out there is our RV. Nobody around, just the way we like it.
We’ve had some amazing skies too. These are both sunrise’s.
This sunrise was New Years Day and was one of the most amazing I’ve ever seen. The pink clouds arched clear overhead, going from East to West and spreading across the entire sky.
There was no way to get it all in a single shot so I made this video.
Sunday we have to leave here and go back to Yuma so Al can go to Mexico to finish the crown on his tooth. Then we jet up to the Phoenix valley on Wednesday and start up with art shows again. I’ve been doing a lot of new images for my “Off the Wall” series. This is a couple of them, but if you go to my website, you can see even more.
It’s Those Guys
I hope your year is off to a good start. The world seems to be completely falling apart, and I guess we can all just hope that things improve somehow.
