Reflections of Autumn

The creek has pretty much stopped flowing for now, but the pools of still water reflect the colors of the season, such as they are in the desert.

After the heat of Summer... Autumn is such a relief and much need in Arizona.
Your photos are spot on as usual !

There is lots of Fall color in my yard. All the fruit on the citrus trees are turning from green to several shades of yellow to bright orange.
Fabulous !

cheers, parsnip

That last picture is what tugged at my heart today. The little minnows dancing with the refractions and reflections of the sunlight. Beautiful!

That still seems like a lot of water for the desert. Nice reflections and I like to see the little fishies.

Pretty and peaceful. Reminds me of Cuyamaca State Park in San Diego County.

The second last picture tells the blue sky is not too far away; otherwise go see him in the water.

beautiful place to capture in a photo. And the water looks so clear.

Shirley said...

I wouldn't have guessed these photos were taken of the desert. They are so beautiful and alive.

Thanks for stopping by The Gardening Life.

I see autumn brings about different hue of colours for you. It must be so wonderful. And I hope the temperature is cooler for you.

Beautiful reflections in the clear water! And great shots of the fish, too.

What beautiful color! Will you have your family with you for Thanksgiving, Diane? I sure hope so. xoxo

indicaspecies said...

Pretty and serene.

Maia said...

Beautiful series of reflection photos. What a gorgeous landscape you have there.

When I think about the desert, I imagine it being just sand. It seems that in your parts is just oasis.

Louis la Vache said...

Excellent series of reflections, Diane!

Dani said...

very very beautiful photos. I really love the first one.

Happy weekend.

rohrerbot said...

I love our creek here. Thanks for sharing the pics....certainly one of the best times of the year to be living in Arizona:)

Lindy MacDuff said...

Gorgeous! Your first image should be enlarged and framed. Reminds me of the many off-road excursions Mike and I took when we were new to Arizona. Fingers crossed that we won't be too old for that sort of thing by the time we return - LOL!

Martha Z said...

Lovely, Diane. I hope some of this rain comes your way to send your creek flowing again and make your desert bloom. We enjoy the rain but hope is is gone by the time Eric and family head up for the holiday.

Ellada said...

Very beautiful photos.

Amin said...

Nice!

Springman said...

I am partial to the third pic, very unusual!

Barb said...
