Snow in the Desert?

by Todd Smith on January 16, 2009

Well, it’s not a very extreme desert, I should say. But just the same, we’re getting tons of snow this year. It just seems funny to see the sage brush almost covered with it.

I mean, shouldn’t these desert plants be jumping up and down? Not the apple trees (they get watered all the time).

I love third photo. It’s like the lines of army.

Brahm – I see what you mean. I find orchards very photogenic. The contrast between the organic forms of the trees and the tight, orderly rows they are placed in provides a different kind of depth than what you see in the forest.
