    Sandflats at sunset+gratuitous flower

    Alliterates Anonymous notwithstanding, I headed to Moab on Thursday with my iPod set to "M". Marc Cohn, Mark Knopfler, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Maura O'Connell accompanied me.

    Five days in the desert + new camera = many photos to sift through. Here are a couple of teasers--in color for now.

    As Monday afternoon wore on, I suspected that the light might be getting nice later in the evening. I skipped dinner and drove up past the Slickrock Trail to see what I could see.

    Straight off the camera. More to come.

    Wow!

    Turn around: Wow!

    Turn around again: Wow! I couldn't decide which way to point the camera.

    Frozen dune

    I stopped this afternoon en route to Grand Junction to rustle up a little leg stretch. So here's one for our favorite wildflower lover. (hint: Austin TX, big wheels, new kitchen in progress)

    Mmmm... Claret cups. They are about 3 weeks late, just like spring was.

    Those flowers are striking. What a great color!

    The landscape shots are great, too. Are you going to post more?

    I apologize. I assumed that the vernacular was more than sufficient in this context.

    I am glad that you like them!

    I will have to scramble to catch up on work for the next few days. I should be able to post the rest over the weekend.
