Gorgeous reflections and scenery. I love that mountain and the pretty colors.

Hilda said...

Beautiful!
But my, that water looks deep! And why is it so still? (I have no experience of things like this and am just so curious.)

Happy weekend!

Diane AZ said...

Hi Hilda, due to drought, the water wasn't flowing much in that part of the creek, so it was a "pool" probably not more than two feet deep.

Thérèse said...

Funny how none of the saguaros' tips reflects in the water.
Such a nice picture!
