  2. What a pleasant surprise it would be to happen upon this refreshing little oasis. The one, tiny red flower hovering over it makes me smile. Happy SSS!

  3. A nice little watering hole for the critters. Nice shot

  4. The desert rocks are so gray, the mere hint of vegetation thin and bland. However, the pool set into the gray is a visual oasis! The reflected sky adds a lovely pastel into the scene, the desert not so barren after all…

  5. little pools of water never cease to amaze me.
    peace, reflection and beauty.
    perfect earth gifts.
