Palo Verde trees reflection~Weekend Reflections 012310


I took a drive around town yesterday morning during a break from our 5 days of rain and found this palo verde tree reflected in a pool of standing water. Our desert southwest, here near Palm Springs, CA, has now received our YEARLY rainfall total in the last 6 days! That's incredible! I remember the last El Nino winter, back in the 80's. We will have a break in the rain for a few days, then a 30% chance of rain early next week. Time to get out and about today! Weekend Reflections for January 23, 2010.

Beautiful Cheryl Anne, I am so into reflections lately. And with all the rain that we get, there are many opportunities to shoot them.

Nice reflection. One good thing about the rain, it certainly gives good opportunity for reflection shots. Enjoy the break in the rain! Kathy

Hard to avoid puddles with the horrid weather you're having. Aren't you glad it's not snow? Nice photo of the calm between storms.

Glad you got a temporary reprieve from the rain. And what a great shot you got out of it. Have a wonderful weekend. Hope it stays dry for you. Kathy
