Skywatch Friday (already??)

Can't believe it's Friday night... been a crazy week and it's gone by so fast it's just a blur! My Skywatch submission for this week is from about 5-6 weeks ago when we went out to Pipes Canyon (north of Yucca Valley) to take some photos. This was a really productive outing... here's a few photos, with more to come.  Have a great weekend!!
One of my favorites... beam of light through the desert sky, very dramatic!

  2. Well done on all, but the God's light photo is tops. I saw that term long ago used to describe that type of sky and light combination. It seemed a fitting description and have never forgotten it.

  11. I love it when I see the beams of light coming from the clouds.
    In Indiana, it usually happens a couple of hours before sunset
    and on a sunny day (we don't get lots of those in the winter).
    For me, it's always a visual of God watching over us and spreading His light.
    These are each wonderful photos.
    Keep shooting and appreciating those beautiful sunny skies.

  30. Hey, we saw a sign for Pipes Canyon yesterday when we had driven out west past Pioneertown. Haven't taken that road yet. Hubby seems to have his own agenda and with him, I don't get to go exploring...sigh... The Morongo Preserve was beautiful yesterday with the cottonwoods leafing out...just gorgeous! We will return there before summer. Joshua Tree~the blossoms on the joshuas were just starting to open! Some hadn't opened yet and it was interesting to see them. It was a good weekend, even though my knee is KILLING ME!
