Golf and Camelback Mountain

Golf dominates the area. The good news is that we enjoy a lot of open space with golf courses and that means lots of great views.

This photo is taken at The Phoenician golf course with the sun low in the sky. You can see part of Camelback Mountain, palm trees, and part of the golf course.  

I will take you on a tour over the next week or so of The Phoenician Resort so you can see its amenities. It is located a stone's throw from my house and I like going there for various activities.

Beautiful scene. A wonderful place to walk. I wonder if they allow anyone to walk around the place?

I haven't been able to get into your blog for two days. I wonder if this will go through now as anonymous. Kate, visualstpaul

Do you play? Maybe we can have a CDP Tournament someday.

Looks like the perfect golf court to me. There is a great mood coming from it.

The light certainly enhances the beauty and softness of the landscape. Beautiful!

I love the play of the shadows. They give the picture a sense of roling hills.

Aside from it being a golf course, the setting and view are really beautiful. I look forward to more shots.

Hi Julie. That is really aa beautiful photograph. I laugh when you say you live "a stone's throw" from that golf course. Me too. In fact, Bermuda has the most golf courses per capita than any place in the world. So everybody here is close to one!

Still, that's such a great shot. Why am I thinking "Lawrence of Arabia?"

Beautiful view! Love the lighting you caught, too.

Such a peaceful scene. I can picture myself kicking back in a lawn chair with a beer enjoying the sunset.

I like this shot. Especially the lighting. I can't wait to see more Julie.
