It has been wonderful month of stormy weather and rain in the desert.
Captured tonight, just outside my back gate. I had a wonderful time sitting and gazing open-mouthed at the spectacular lightning show that unfolded before my eyes. This image features one of my favourite kurkara (desert oak trees) silhouetted against the stormy night sky.
As an added bonus tonight, I captured these images whilst listening to the incredible soundtrack of frogs singing in the desert – a rare and wonderful sound. These little fellas spend most of the time burrowed under the bark of trees or in the earth… just waiting for the rains to fall again. What a special treat to hear them tonight!
