Good Morning Sunshine

It’s Monsoon Season in the desert.
Praying for rain
The landscapes are dry
Flowers are few
Only a true desert lover can see the beauty

As I walk down the path this morning at dawn, camera in hand, I am on a scavenger hunt for photo jewels that bring out the beauty hidden in the thirsty brush.
They are there.
And my goal is to capture them in a way for them to shine.



I am not sure what these are, but they were very cool looking:

I notice a lot of plants have a sap type substance on them:

I don’t believe I have seen this before on palm trees!
I thought it was quite beautiful:


I hope I never lose the ability to see beauty in the unexpected.
I hope I never lose the love of learning.
I hope I never become afraid to try something new.
I hope I never lose my creative and artistic flair.
I hope I always believe in myself no matter what others think.

I hope I never stop living until the day I do.

I hope I always believe

    1. Thank you! I don’t know why I waited so long to get a nice camera (got about a year ago), but I love it! And I’m finding a lot of inspiration on blogs and Instagram 🙂

    Pretty early morning photos. I love the last one with the sun shining behind it. The poem of hope is something that would be great for us to read every morning!

    Thanks for encouraging us to not let the lack of rain keep us from seeing the beauty around us.
