Those yellow things are a cluster of dates.  We don't see many of those in town, except at our local college and these two palm trees at our local park.  All the other trees are trimmed and dateless.  So, I was surprised to see these at our civic center park the other day.  They will ripen and be harvested about January.  Soon, they will be covered with brown paper to protect them from the birds.

desert sunset~Sunday stills Challenge~111311

This week's challenge was to focus on one subject and then post a "bad" and "good" photo of it.  Or, good and better?  Anyway, the top photo was taken in Scottsdale, at the Desert Ridge Villas one afternoon in August.  I waited a few minutes and then took the bottom one.  What a difference a few minutes can make, right?  Same camera, same spot, but different light.  Sunday Stills Challenge for November 13, 2011.
