HDD,
Wow.. what a picture. I love your open space out there even though I've yet to visit the area. I'm curious about your blog shot with the Miss America crown. Were you a Miss America?

Hey Harriet said...

I like them all but that last one is stunning!

High Desert Diva said...

Bach,

No, no. Not Miss America by any stretch of the imagination. I added the crown to that two year old photo because I was feeling silly. I didn't realize it was Miss America week....

What a fabulous shot!

We're in the middle of a serious drought, here, and everything is brown and/or dry.

Not much for the camera to love, right now.

Great blog, btw!
