Rain in the Desert

Uploaded by: beemeraz

Tuesday September 10, 2013

Apache Junction, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This goes in the be-careful-what-you-wish-for file. I had this spot selected and waited months for a good soaking rain. This wash in the Superstition Mtns seemed the perfect place to photograph a desert wash in full flow. On Monday the skies opened and as soon as the rain stopped I headed out... only to find a friendly DPS officer blocking the highway because the washes ahead had closed the road with debris. 24 hours later and this trickle was what remained. Maybe next time.

You're right, there's always next time. Still, don't discount the beauty of this one! The rich colors say lifegiving water, and the sand patterns moved around by the wash tell the story, perhaps even better than the stream in full flow. Excellent shot!

I think I'd be buying that DSP officer a dozen doughnuts for this shot. Really nice!
