Textures~Desert after the storm~Sunday Stills Challenge 013110
























































This week's challenge really IS a challenge! I went through some of my archived photos and, after finding so many pictures which could fit this challenge, I finally settled on these. I took these the week before last, right after a break in our five days of rain. It was a beautiful and unique time to venture out and around our desert southwest. The plants smelled of rain and wet earth. The creosote smelled...well, of creosote! Water drops were clinging to the smoke tree branches, and even the cholla was wet. It was a good day to experience our desert southwest. Sunday Stills Challenge for January 31, 2010. Enjoy your day!

Lots of textures in these photos, but I think my fave is the 2nd to the last shot. I love that sky & the mountains.

Very nice texture shots. I like the patio pictures and the first one of leaves(?).
