One of the most magical places my husband and I visited when we visited the US in 2012 was the Painted Desert, Arizona – just past the Petrified Forest.
Here are some of my favourite photographs – from the coming of the rain to the clearing of the skies. The rain popped the vibrant colours of the sands.
If you want to have a look at our other photos from this trip, including the bottom of the Grand Canyon as seen from Diamond Creek crossing, Sedona, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Mt Shasta – check out our USA album @ Flickr. This album also has photos from our other US trips to New York.
