La Quinta's painterly sky.

We took a lovely trip to La Quinta, California, in late December 2020. Good weather, great views, and a pool served as an escape from locked down Los Angeles.

The sky reflecting and contrasting the immense mountainside soothed my eyeballs and mental space. One particular night the sunset provided spectacular warm gradients designed by clouds.

A small, nearly pink, cloud marched across the sky.
Velvet pink and blue sky
A velvet blanket slowly cascades.
Spooky spooky moon in cloud cover
The moon showed up a few hours later.
