Two Birds and Camelback Mountain

Two birds were flying in front of Camelback Mountain as the sun was going down. If you enlarge the photo, you will see the birds better.

I like the shadows and light that occur as the sun was slowly setting. The birds are always active at this time of day.

The sun on the Phoenician golf course was casting various shadows and the light and color was changing rapidly.

I love the play of shadow and light, too. Those birds are so joyful in their flight. And what a view that house on the hill has!

You've really captured this light and these shadows well.

Great capture getting those birds flying over.

Must be a great view, enjoyed by the birds. Read lately a book, asking whether one would give the small finger, in order to be able to fly - after looking at your photography, I guess I would.

The curves, greens, blues and shadows. Lovely.

That is a large sandtrap! From the look of it no one had been in it recently. Wonder what kind of birds these are.

It is a pleasure to see a sand trap up close without a golf ball of mine in it.

As the table. A great image. If such an image must be hard to catch.
