The Palm Trees were being watered this morning. This border rock was benefitting from a misdirected sprinkler. Taken in at ground level, zoomed in. Cropped and levels adjusted.
Terrific spotting and capture!
The water really brings out the color and texture of the stone. Nice detail work!!
It’s neat how the light is captured in the stream of water and the rock color is wonderfully vibrant.
How much water does it take to keep a palm tree alive in the desert, I wonder?
I learned yesterday that the proper flow rate is 5 gallons per hour. They water the Palms about 3 times a week during the summer, about 4 hours each time.
Nice saturated color and motion capture. You come up with some of the most interesting images from mundane subject matter.
Looks like it’s wrapped in cellophane. Beautiful texture in rock.
Mike just took my comment….it looks like it’s been “saraned wrapped”….love the saturated colors in the rock that the water provides.
