1 Shot Wednesday: A Cool Picture

Is it hot where you live? August is my least favorite month of the year. It’s the month one suffers through. In many places, it’s hot and humid (the steamy heat that coats and drains) or if you live in Arizona (except for Flagstaff), it’s that dry, blasting heat with three-digit temperatures. (100-120 F or 37/48c ) This photo is a visual cool down. I enjoy looking at photos out of season. This surprise snowfall happened on Christmas morning, 2016. We drove up to Jerome to get a view of the valley. Hang in there! Fall is fast approaching. 

The best Christmas present if you live in the desert.

Five Shots: Defrosted Flamingos

The other day, many viewers enjoyed the four frosted flamingos sitting on a fence up at Jerome, Arizona. Well, the sun shines, the snow is gone, and I thought some of you might like to see what they look like minus the snow. I don’t know who makes the costumes, but I can’t help but be curious to see what they’ll be wearing next.

Christmas Day Frosted Flamingos




I expect New Year’s Eve sparkler hats are the next outfit.

Five Shots: Jerome on Christmas


Here is the second round of photos taken on Christmas as we drove up to higher elevation and passed through the copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. We usually get snow once a year, and it is a spectacular treat for us in NC Arizona.
