Giant wind turbines on top of hill along I-10 near Palm Springs look like little daisies from the car

As always wonderful sky photos.

The perk of living in Arizona is our fabulous skies ! and my over stuffed iPhoto is proof of that.

Looks like you had a lovely trip.

cheers, parsnip

I really like the photo of the wind turbines. For some strange reason it makes me smile. :)

I saw the daisies 19 years ago. Your photo brought back memories. And it’s a great photo too.
Sunrise in Phoenix is a truly wonderful photo. Aah, by the time I get there…..
Love Picacho Peak too. The photo has such marvelous composition.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful shots.

All the best, Boonie

Beautiful skies and scenery, one and all. It's been a while since we've seen Picacho Peak. Hiked it once in the springtime, almost 10 years ago. Love that sunrise, though - WOW!
