A patch of blue sky is reflected on the ice of this lake near Flagstaff, Arizona, USA during a snow squall.
I am back from my annual pilgrimage to Death Valley, riding the dirt bikes, and at last I have some new images to share. This is looking southeast from Aguereberry Point toward the valley floor. Across the valley is Dante’s View.
Just an example of a cool old vehicle, perfectly preserved, languishing in the dry climate of the desert.
The San Francisco Peaks in this image are near Flagstaff, Arizona, USA. I took this in March, right at the edge of winter, when the colors were especially nice, at least to my eye.
After last night’s post, I had to show you all what the purple alien-looking sunflower looks like now that it has opened! I also found out that it is a variety of sunflower called Red Sun, a very fitting name in my opinion! Very beautiful.
Taking a short break from the farm, I had to share with you this dramatic purple sunflower. Until I started growing them, I didn’t think too much about sunflowers and the different varieties that exist. By chance, I found this type, and I think it is beautiful in a unique way. My husband remarked that it really looks like an alien. We’ve often discussed how sunflowers look like aliens before the flowers open, with their spiky aurora-like leaves surrounding the budding flower.
I hope you like this one that will soon open to regal red and gold.
On the farm, the trees and the fence conspire to make this shady lane.
