Every year I visit my parents and family in Arizona.  I love the desert landscapes and their spare beauty.  These shots are from the Mesa and Sedona areas, perfect for the “Landscapes and Seascapes” challenge.

If you don’t die of thirst, there are blessings in the desert.  You can be pulled into limitlessness, which we all yearn for, or you can do the beauty of minutiae, the scrimshaw of tiny and precise.  The sky is your ocean, and the crystal silence will uplift you like great gospel music, or Neil Young.

~Mary Austin
