Very nice shots .. it's hard to pick a favourite as I like them all..

It's also proof that the desert is never boring :-)

Daphne @ Joyful Days said...

Wow, these are beautiful shots! I never knew the desert could be this awesome.

Arija said...

Oh, I love the whisp of ghostly cloud in the second shot and the second last also has something eerie about the white cloud.

Lance said...

Hi Diane,
These all so great! I especially love the one near the end of the lone cactus at sunset (or sunrise). It just makes me feel like we're part of something much greater, what is beyond what we can see with the naked eye. And that what nature produces, it is so beautiful and awesome - and this picture really depicts that for me...

Wow, so many different skies. I miss that part of not living on the East Coast. LA's sky doesn't change too much. Lots of blue, without too many clouds.

Great shots..................:)

Ria said...

Ilan said...

Sorry to be late here.
I love how these desert plants branch up so high to the sky! Fabulous shots and the colours and moods are very appealing and tempting!
Great!
