There are probably thousands of buttes and stone outcroppings that carry locally assigned names like "The Purple Mesa, "The Black Mesa," etc. scattered across the southwestern US. This Purple Mesa is depicted during a rare wet spring season when the desert vegetation turns from silver gray, washed-out tan, and faded green to bloom in a fantastic explosion of colors. A week or two later and it is all a dormant memory that has been erased by the broiling summer sun.

I usually avoid whites in my work, so I thought I'd force myself to wrestle with some for a change. Al

Um, think you used all white. :D

Guess I commented before the image loaded. The whites work well here. Im enjoying your series of southwest themes (my favorite region of the US).
