Weekend Reflections

The sun is peeking from behind a saguaro.






Curve-billed Thrasher


Desert Cotton






Pin Cushion cactus with fruit


Arizona Rosewood




Texas Mulberry





These pictures are from an early morning walk to the creek at Sabino Canyon on Saturday.  In  the last image, I like the way the rocky reflection mingles with the rocks under the water.  Have a nice weekend!

A fascinating series of photos of your world! In the last photo, love how the rocks seem to create ghostly markings in the water!

I've enjoyed all your photos, Diane. I especially like the first of the saguaro and the photos of the "Desert Cotton" - which looks like a peony or tulip to me. Such great light in your shots.

Diane, you always awe me with your landscape pictures, the saguaro arch that frames the landscape is really very unique and the rest are really inspiring.

Great photos. I love the cactus with the fruit. They look like chili peppers.

Loree said...

The desert cotton is so pretty. And the cactus fruit looks like some type of pepper.

I agree with Tracy! You see the most wonderful things. Is that a saguaro forming the arch in the second picture? Love the water shots...here in the desert...imagine!
