Friday's Photo


My favorite time of year is winter when the sun is low in the sky and casts some spectacular shadows both outside and in my house. It is the best time to be in the Arizona desert.
It's actually the ONLY time to be in the Arizona desert.
If you've ever experienced an Arizona desert summer you, like me, have probably wondered what crazies would create a city in such an unbelievably hot, horrid place.  I spend about 7 months of the year rejoicing and admiring  the beautiful weather only to curl up and whimper through the remaining 5 months of  the hotter than hot summer average of 100+ degrees. Wikipedia compares our weather to Baghdad, Iraq.    Lovely.

The light and shadows from the evening sun:

Panning back:

Exact same picture after the sunlight left, and without zoom. Not very interesting anymore.

Thanks for the visit and cheers to a great weekend!
