I enjoy getting out on Friday afternoons, armed only with my camera! This was taken up in our foothills on the first day of spring. The desert has a certain beauty. It was quiet, except for the occasional call of a quail that afternoon and I enjoyed the long late afternoon shadows. For me, getting out and walking is theraputic. I quickly get over all my stress from the week and ease into the weekend. Scenic Sunday for March 22, 2009.
