SkyWatch - A Solstice rainbow

Back from the desert to the cold, cold, cold of the farm

the nights were cold in the desert too, but it was a dry cold
with incredibly clear skies
where the milky way was visible
from horizon to horizon

the pot of gold, or opals
at the other end

a heartwarming Solstice fire as the temperature
started dropping
and a rum toddy may have been
more fitting than our, none the less enjoyable G&T

while the sun slipped gently down into the red soil

Pure enjoyment, what a life!

  3. Just beautiful. Welcome back - and thank you for the rainbow.

  4. i am so glad you had a nice time away.
    i enjoyed seeing your photos and your solstice rainbow.

  5. Beautiful desert scenery. I believe I might be able to handle that kind of winter. (And I'd prefer the G&T over the hot toddy thank you).

  6. Interesting scenery, shame your G&T was sub par though-rum toddy sounds delicious too though.

    1. Nothing sub par about our G&Ts, only problem was the non compatibility of sinking winter night temps and clinking ice blocks.

  7. Grand desert views - especially in the first photo. Extraordinary sight to see a rainbow in the desert.

  8. There is something very special about the desert, even when the nights get cold.

  9. I really like your wide-open desert views! The last photo is my favorite.

  10. All so very beautiful and I am thinking that you did quite enjoy yourself. I have been missing you and wondered about you. Thankful you were out and about having fun. Stay warm. Heart hugs~
