Inland in SoCal/AZ

Solar obscured

Once again, we find SoCal murky. More rain systems pushing in from the Pacific. Not good for solar panel action….

Chapel on flattopmd

Wearing my archaeo-hat, I would describe this as civic-ceremonial architecture on a flat-topped mound. You might say it’s a roadside chapel for some reason on a bulldozed hill.

Lettuce imperial valley

Lettuce? Lots left in the field…I assume to be plowed into the ground as green manure….

Irrigation pipes

Considerable irrigation required to make row-crops productive in the Imperial Valley….

Desert encampment

Our Arizona desert encampment for the afternoon and early evening…

Desert rainbow

…even more beautiful with a rainbow, arc en ciel, aka arco iris.

Quick walk

And MJ and I took a power walk while Droney flew…such stupendous light…so wonderful catching up with long-time friends…until next time…. Lucky us….

No rain today

Morning beach

Gulls/Terns and surfers under the marine layer. Here on this SoCal beach, lifeguards use red pickups.

Seal Beach

Police? Surveyors? close one side of a bridge (out of frame, right)…fortunately for us, not our direction. (Yay!)

Rooftop critters

Random rooftop critters. Extra points if you noticed the pigeon before this mention.

Lawn bowling

Note: lawn bowling is not bocce or pétanque.

Redwoods urban

This sample suggests that redwoods are not an urban species, or just a NoCal species that does not like SoCal.

Green church

Dramatic green lighting on this SoCal Episcopal church. So Cali.

Apologies: too fried to do more than extended captions. Luvya.
