Texture-ific shots from Arizona


This is what the LORD says:

“In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you;

I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people,
to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’

“They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.

I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up.
See, they will come from afar—some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan."

Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains!
For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
Isaiah 49:8-13

  3. Wow i love that very artistic bark! Do you know what tree is that? And that last photo looks like something from here, we have lots of those too, and different materials used for doing it. Sometimes its from a vine, sometimes fiber from palms and sometimes fiber from weeds, and sometimes the stem of a weed.

  43. Really great pictures from Arizona. When we retire that is where we want to move to, but that will not happen until the housing market picks up here in CA. Cacti pic makes one think twice before going near it. I think the piece of driftwood is very interesting.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us over at Theme Thursday, I really enjoyed them.

    God bless.
