Through Sand and Shadow

Photobucket
An arroyo in Northern Arizona, USA

Through sand and shadow
I follow crooked pathways—
long is the journey.

TAKE AIM AT THE SHADOWS!

Playing along this week.

It always seems so incongruous to see sand and snow together. A lovely shadow shot!

colleen said...

I love the way shadows loom and fall.

Doug Peabody said...

Very nice shot. They deserts of Arizona and New Mexico are great spots for photos. Thanks for sharing. I've been "horsing around" for my post this week.

Cassie said...

Sand. Snow. Shadows. The perfect SSS trifecta!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Very good and nice photo.

Regards and best wishes

Patti said...

Hi MMT,

Snow? I don't think of snow when I think Arizona. ;-)

Long indeed is the journey.

Thanks for hosting.

I love the combination of Snow and sand. I don't usually see them together. Great shot!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

....ummm, is that snow in the shadows? Hmmmm, desert area?

Dianne said...

it's like 2 seasons side by side
snowy winter and sandy summer
very cool

Dina said...

I love the word arroyo, and your poem, and the snow.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

So ironic to see the snow in the desert. It's water, but it stays on the surface. It might even evaporate (there's a word for that but I forget) before it melts into the earth.

Gemma Wiseman said...

At first that looks like water slipping down! Love this shadowy meeting of snow and sand!

John McElveen said...

You know how much I love this one already!!! Looks so warm, and then you see SNOW!!!

Blessings,

John

At first, it looks like a warm and cozy day meant to be spent meandering through this dry creek bed. Then the snow comes into view and it all changes; the temperature drops, but I just put on a down vest and keep on walking. I love this!

bj said...

Now, this, my dear one, is an awesome photo. I love it. :)
O and did you know you have word verification on??.....just sayin' :)

LV said...

How nice it would be walking along this warm sand path wrapped in shadows.

Love the photo and words. Great shot.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Now how perfect can this be ? the sand hollow with a wee bit of snow there ? I would love to walk through this and see what is on the other side !
Joy : )
