Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Skywatch Friday February 20, 2009 shadows!


Several times when I drove up to see the horses, I noticed beautiful shadows on our local hills on my way back down to the desert. Hubby and I finally watched the afternoon shadows and figured out that about 4:15 was the perfect time to see the shadows on the hills. Some days were too cloudy, but this afternoon was perfect! So, this day, I pulled over several times to stop and take a photo. Aren't the shadows pretty? If you click on the photo and enlarge it, you can see cars on the road below. SkyWatch Friday for February 20, 2009. http://skyley.blogspot.com/

What a great landscape/skyscape. Were you thinking of Skywatch when you took it? How far is the trip up the hill? Aren't I full of questions this morning, lol?

Great vantage point for a photo. Wonderful shot. I love hill shadows. We get them a lot in the early spring and summer right on the hills in front of our house.
