Wintery summer days

These were taken in the dying days of 2014.

An early morning family walk in anticipation of the pounding rays of sun that are so normal at  this time of year in our desert city. Instead we were met with grey skies and cold wind sigils of winter everywhere.

Snowflakes, never actually found here found in the patterned grate on the street, brown seed pods littering the path, unnervingly beautiful in their ill timed appearance.

It wouldn't last long the new year bringing with it the burning sun.
