Mountain Sunset Or

how I may end up liking my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone after all...


Driving home after a dinner in town with Thomas and Michaela, my relatives from Sweden, the sun was setting, casting a golden glow over the highway signs.


My new phone came up with some surprisingly great pictures (from a moving car at that) of the wind turbines that are by now taking over the mountains around here.



The barren hills at the beginning of our canyon glowed red in the setting sun.


Further into the canyon, clouds added to the spectacular beauty of a desert mountain sunset.


Earlier, I tried to explain to the Swedes how I fell in love with this area after I saw the sun rise over the horizon in the Mojave desert, one morning about nine years ago.



My words were not enough, they never are. I'd have to be a poet.... But after they experienced this sunset, they may have understood a little better 


my love for this mountain canyon. 


A beautiful ending to a great and fun day, which I will write more about soon. 


Just had to show you this and let you know my second thoughts about this new phone of mine. Who would've thought it could take pictures like this?

  3. Your phone really showed some good colors! Mine is supposed to be very good, but it just doesn't pick up the right colors.

  5. Those are some great pictures. I am trying to decide is I want to upgrade to a Samsung Galaxy or an IPhone. These pictures might just help me. They are beautiful. I can see why you love your Canyon!

  8. Cameras on smartphones are excellent now. I've taken some good ones with mine, too, Inger. I still prefer my actual camera, but in a pinch, it captures the moment quite well. Thanks for the desert photos! I've only seen the desert a couple of times but I know it's not for me. I need to be near water, must be that I'm a water sign on the zodiak. . .We will be moving very soon, and I'll be glad. Hope all is going as best as it can be with you. Hugs!

  10. I am with you on the Samsung Galaxy phone.! I have a Galaxy 4, and it is amazing! My family took me kicking and screaming to buy such a complicated phone, but I am slowly learning about its capabilities. Your photos are amazing...and out of a moving car! Working on that one.

  11. Great shots! Love where you live too!
    Something is wrong with my blogger, your post did not show up in a timely manner.
    I may look into that phone, I am "due" to get a new phone.
    Wondering if my stiff hands can work it.
    Thoughts?

  13. Great shots. Those phones are really challenging cameras. Sometimes only the real thing like that sunset can convey the feeling.

  14. I've been resisting getting a smart phone because I'm so ignorant when it comes to new technology. My son has one and takes breathtaking photos with it.

    I've never seen so many wind turbines all in one place. Great photos and the sunset is spectacular..
    Wishing you all the best.
    Hugs,

  15. Your pictures are always lovely, Inger. These new phones are great cameras and it makes one wonder if separate cameras are a thing of the past.

  16. Beautiful, just beautiful! I have an Iphone 6 and it takes great pictures as well. It is amazing nowadays the many uses just one phone has. Everything you need (well, almost everything) right there in that small phone. Thanks for sharing this beautiful sunset with us. And Gracie says: Samson, did you really have Lemonade dreams of me? We are both glad you think of us when you look at the hearts.. and they are in the perfect place. Hugs!

  19. Hi Inger - they do take amazing photos - as your Canyon ones above show us .. so gorgeous. So happy you've been spending time with your Swedish relatives - must be Swedish time ... and enjoy getting back into speaking and reading a little Swedish. Lovely ... and cheers and big hugs to you and your four footers ... Hilary

  20. I like your photos and I like those mountains. But I wish the wind turbines weren't there. Seems like man has to put his grubby fingerprints over everything in nature. Here, they bulldoze off the entire tops of mountains, make them into plateaus, and then build summer houses for rich people. It totally destroys the natural beauty of a place when they do that.

  21. Beautiful photos! I have a S4 and love the camera! I also love the ease of getting the photos from my phone onto my blog, or Facebook or Twitter. Technology is amazing. Take care and thanks for sharing your beautiful mountain canyon with us. -Jeff

  25. Wonderful photos and your phone can do so much more than that too. Glad you're enjoying it :-)

  26. I don't have a cell Inger because of the cost unless I win the Lotto, which I daresay will never come about. However after seeing your photos and YOURCANYON, well I just may reconsider. First stop eating out and then buy a phone. Sound reasonable!?!

    Hope your warm world is giving you more JOY and CONTENTMENT as the days mosey on.

    Jim's 67th BDAY is today as you celebrate America's BDAY we celebrate Jim's joy of life!

    Cheers!

    Very beautiful photos of a stunning sunset on the desert mountain!
    Really you live in a gorgeous place!
    Your Samsung Galaxy S6 phone is great for sure.
    I like so much your new header photo too. All these wind turbines looks amazing and surreal.
    Lots of hugs and much Love to you!

  29. Those cameras can do every thing. And the turbines resemble something from outer space

  30. Hope you are faring well.

    Your canyon is beautiful. I visited some desert country and fell in love which surprised me since I'm from a green land of water and mountains. There is almost a mystical air about a desert. Maybe I can return again one day.

  31. Silly you - its not the camera, its the photographer who has the talent! ;) xoxox
