Beauteous photos that look very familiar. Gorgeous reflections too.

Lovely reflections! Were those taken at Sabino Canyon?

Your haiku reminds me of the Curved Bill Thrashers I've been seeing lately. I guess it's the males who perch up high at this time of year to sing their pretty mating songs.

Pat said...

Absolutely stunning. I don't know which one is prettier. I couldn't choose. Nope, don't make me!

Gaelyn said...

Nice to see reflections in the desert and not a mirage. Great captures Diane. Think we have more rain coming up here.

Stephanie said...

The second pic is unique with the tree reflected upside down and those drying grass at the banks looking up.

Yes you are right! I was so surprised to find that pitcher plant retailer at the shopping mall. It was a nice discovery for me :-)

I especially like the second one Diane. Nice to see pools of water in a normally dry area.

These are such beautiful photos. You really capture the beauty of this environment! Most people think of the desert as colorless, you certainly prove that theory wrong. These are gorgeous! Kathy

Thérèse said...

Such a feeling of crispness coming out of these pictures!

Tes said...

Beautiful reflection pictures, Diane! The water is so still and clear. Peaceful! :)

I especially enjoy the middle photo where one can notice that there are worlds within worlds stacked upon each other from here to infinity.

Ebie said...

You always have great views of the dessert! This set of photos are just simply gorgeous!

Self Sagacity said...

As usual those pictures are amazing. Even though there are no leaves on the tree, you can tell that it is beautiful from its shape.

James said...

That looks like a really great place. The reflections are wonderful too.

Pam said...

What beautiful mountains in the background, I am envious.
The reflections on the water are perfect mirror images, they are stunning, Diane

betchai said...

very creative way of looking at reflections, awesome images.

rainfield61 said...

We get reflected everyday, either by ourself or some others.

Arasu said...

The hair like grass, with reflections formed nice patterns. The reflection of the tree and the landscape look nice.

ksdoolittle said...

Stunning photos! Especially the center pic! It's as though the reflections could go on and on and on! Lovely capture. Someday a trip to your little corner of the world is in order! I hope it is sooner than later. ~ks

awarewriter said...

The second shot is my favorite. All your images have such wonderful colors.
