Rock and Surf
Pacific ocean waves playing along the coast encounter an aged unmoving stone.
After dark the ocean waves softly ebb and flow amongst the coastal rocks and caves while birds find a momentary respite.
Ocean waves percolate in and out of a tidal pool in a californian coastal cove at dusk.
Approaching Valley of Fire
Clouds and rain play on the mountainous vista near the entrance to the Valley of Fire, CA.
Whispy Rain Clouds
Whispy rain clouds fall on the mountains while light plays dramatically in the foothills.
Near the Valley of Fire each mountain has a completely different color or tone ranging from black to white and in between. A really spectacular unique sight.
Here Comes the Rain
It's always raining somewhere, and sometimes you can see it far far away and not get wet!

Desert flowers are emphasized here during the translation to black and white. The wildflower bloom is depicted here; a somewhat sparse year - sometimes you'd be hard pressed to see the desert floor.
Anza-Borrego Valley Desert Floor 02
Can you tell if it's hot or cold here today as a storm passes over the valley during the wildflower bloom?
