In the desert, we so seldom see any real color on the ground. During springtime, flowers do sprout, and for a few weeks, the cacti have pops of color. Most of the time, the landscape is mostly brown and red, with spots of low green. However, the sky is one place where we see color; I try to forget that it’s a direct result of the pollution in the area and just appreciate that it’s pretty.
As a bonus, here’s a picture I took while I was in PA. I was outside and looked up at the creepy sky. Between the full moon, the trees, and the way the sky looked purple, I took maybe a dozen pictures, trying to get this one right. This was the best I managed. Not perfect, but still creepy.
