Winter wears white


Winter hit us with snow. 

A lovely site that transforms the desert and transfixes its residents.

Gorgeous photography, Brenda! I saw a few flakes in Quartzsite and there was snow on them thar hills, too!

Beautiful! There's just no way a photo cannot be taken and turn out great out there. I hate to see the snow gone though I suppose it is after yesterday's high temps. :(

Your photos are beautiful. Worthy of some publication like Arizona Highways! Wish I could have seen the snow on the mountaintops.

Are those the Superstition Mountains? Sure look like them! Beautiful!!!

The snow really adds to the mountain sculpture. What a fine backdrop to the saguaros. Beautiful images!

I agree with Kathy and her high praise for your photography. These were just beautiful to look at!

How nice to see you out and about, bloggily speaking, especially when you bring us jaw-droppingly magnificent scenes such as these.

That top shot is tops. And Number 4 is special too.

How often do your mountains show snow? Every year?

Thérèse said...

It makes us look at well known mountains in such a different way!

Brenda's Arizona said...

Wow, thank you all for the kind comments on the photography.

Banjo, I think these mountains (the Superstitions) get snow like this every 10 years or so. Kathy or Roe might be able to correct me. I look forward to their remembrance/
knowledge!

Best name ever for a mountain range, by the way.
