Thank you for all the nice comments on this and my other pictures. The American southwest has always amazed me with all there is to see down there. It was great to experience a little more of it. Take care.
Hey Larry! I used to get down to the southwest at least twice a year - I had a sweet arrangement where I was delivering cars between Phoenix or Palm Springs and my hometown every spring and fall. I took advantage of every trip to see something new down there... it's such an amazing part of the world. But those car delivering days are over. When I went down there last year, it was the first time I had been to Arizona and Utah where I wasn't getting paid! Oh well... it was still alright... (Okay fine, it was still amazing even when I had to pay to go see it!)
You have an incredible image of the Coral Pinks. Its intensity is burning my eyes, as I look at it through the monitor. Maybe I better put sunglasses on! There, that's better ... yes, you HAVE to take advantage of every opportunity that passes your way!!!
