Good Skies - Pretty Pictures

Greetings Earthlings.  I have not shuffled off this mortal coil, I just don't have too much to say at present.  In light of the current constitutional crisis, the executive branch's brazen defiance of the will of the legislative branch and a few more shootings of unarmed citizens - I just do not have anything original or erudite to add.  Oh, and there is the matter of one million species about to be extincted, changing the planet for bad and probably extincting us, as well.  It's a good time to be old.

We did have some glorious weather.  A low sitting off the coast sent us a cool air mass and clear skies.   It was just delightful.

The saguaros are opening and are quite attractive.  They're hard to photograph because they are so tall.

The last of the chollas.  They're pretty much done.

The sky last night was pretty cool.  There were enough clouds to make some color.

That's it!  Back on your heads and carry on.


  1. Beautiful pictures! It's nice to see a bee on that saguaro. (Hopefully there were others flying around up there!)

  2. I just love those saguaros. Never had the chance to photograph them yet.

  3. cool flowers on the saguaros. we are such a stupid greedy species. what other creature systematically destroys the very things it needs to survive. you are so right, a good time to be old.

  4. You're struck up a theme here. How often I've commented I'm glad to be old. I, for one, cannot talk easily and happily about living on Mars or the moon. On the other hand, your desert flowers are rather new to me, too, and I like looking at them.

  5. Pretty pictures help console against the weirdos running the world. So - pretty pictures!
