There are many stark and barren roads throughout the Southwest United States. They assist the ghosttowns and old mining camps in creating a very rugged and unique Old West landscape.

Intriguing Ruins

In Arizona and nearby states, there are many Native American ruins. They are very interesting to explore and learn about - certainly quite different from any other type of architecture. This image was captured at Wupatki National Monument, near Flagstaff, AZ. Wupatki is home to over 800 such ruins, built by the Sinagua, Kayenta Anasazi, and Cohonina tribes long ago - a fascinating place to visit!

The Scent Of Water

...at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots... Holy Bible, Job 14:9. In the desert, a touch of rain changes the entire landscape - beauty emerges from withered places where one cannot imagine life could still exist. This image was captured in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

Wink Of Daybreak

I felt this was an appropriate name for this image of several African Iris flowers blooming in the early morning hours. Iris blooms have 3 petals that sag downward (or, in some cases, outward) and 3 petals that stand upright. This image was captured in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

The Passion

The Passion Flower plant was named, by early European travelers in America, for the passion of Christ, because the flower structure seemed symbolic of the scourging, crowning with thorns, and crucifixion of Jesus. This image was captured at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
