  1. ‘Ancient sands’ – aaaah 🙂

  2. Beautifully weathered location, and lovely imagery in the poem.

  3. Linda paisagem, árida e rústica. Gosto disso, um abraço!

  4. Lovely evening shadows and beautiful words! Always a great way to start my day!! Enjoy your weekend!

  5. The desert floor can be unforgiving under the hot desert sun. However at day’s end, the sand is as soft as the sky, the nighttime shadows cooling the scene…the reward for a long and hard day is the quiet artistry of the pink sky. Sweet dreams…

  6. are you within walking distance to these lovely spots you photograph? love the phrase of ancient sands! so true, I’m sure.

      All these desert scenes are within moments of my back door. The farthest, an ancient saguaro cactus, is about a 10-minute walk, but it takes me much longer, because I’m always stopping to photograph other things along the way!

  7. i always love looking at the textures, hues and shadows of your desert. and your words put the added touch for excellence.

  8. Always such tranquil images you have of the desert. Very calming. Love the time of day you take the images too-such beautiful light.

  9. Romantic whimsy in your delightful haiku! And love the soft earthy tones in your photo!

  10. Your world is silent, only colours remain, lovely!

  17. Your words pulled me right into this desert walk – and it is breathtaking! And then there is the photo with that light! Thank you for this.
