Wordless Wednesday: Afternoon De-Light

Elephant Rock, Valley of Fire

I’m sharing three photos for Becky B’s January Squares Challenge today for Wordless Wednesday.

The theme for these images is “Afternoon Delight” taken while on our winter road trip.

Before dinner on Christmas Eve, we walked along the Sail Bay side of Pacific Beach in San Diego. The light was amazing!

After our cold and snowy tour of the Grand Canyon, the afternoon light glowed on the snow-covered areas of Highway 17 on our drive back to Phoenix.

I finally got to see the Elephant Rock in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.

When you stand among the red rocks and sand, everything glows!

Don’t forget to join me here this Sunday for the Sunday Stills photo challenge where we explore the theme yin-yang!

San Diego’s Pacific Beach and Downtown Skyline

We are enjoying a short vacation in beautiful San Diego. Spent Sunday morning on Mission Bay, stand-up paddling with my husband, step-daughter and step-son.

After paddling we had lunch at a little Greek bistro, then walked over to Pacific Beach boardwalk.

Later we went to dinner in Point Loma at a wonderful seafood shop and experienced this unbelievable sunset that set downtown San Diego buildings aglow.
