Wilderness canal—
somewhere a paddy greening
thirsts for more and more.

  1. I haven’t been to AZ in decades (1978) – I thought it a bit odd that so many water intensive crops like cotton were grown around PHX back then. Yet, we need the refreshment of water for life itself. Always have to wonder…the red soil is beautiful though!

  2. Great, red shadow shot for the day!! Have a lovely weekend!

  3. such a gorgeous shot MMT. love the composition with the water headed off to the corner.

  4. Sounds like our drought here in Texas, too!

  5. Yes, a growing thirst..

  6. Love the lighting on these earthy tones and the sharp “injection” of water is like a touch of visual drama! Beautiful!

  7. The desert must have its charms, but green isn’t one of them! Green Fields

  8. Do I sense a little irrigation irritation?

    Green Paddy

  9. hm, that´s straight canal. Not much wilderness will pass I think. Beautiful photograph but not a nice, manmade, nature,

  10. lovely light in this photo


  11. oh! i love the way my eyes travel along the water; chanting your haiku as i go along

    much love…

  12. So starkly plain, so chillingly needed. Wow.

  13. I like the earthy tone around and the water is really need, I can see.

    Have a great Sunday.

  14. Beautiful and so glassy looking. Looks like it goes on forever…

  15. Oh I recall those wateed pastures close to Phoenix.. water in the canals but empty rivers

  16. wow, that water is still…beatiful.
    About your question: I don’t know about others but I am allowed to have a break! 🙂
