Water, Art, and Desert

This is a photo of the entrance where you are dropped off at the Phoenician Resort. 

This photo is taken from the front of the lobby of the hotel looking towards Camelback Mountain and the cactus botanical garden that exists below some of the hotel rooms at the base of the mountain.

The Phoenician has superb Native American statues throughout the property, like the one you see in this photo. Art is a part of the decor.

The Phoenician combines water, art, and the desert for a wonderful ambience. There is beauty in all that you see and there is quite a variety of viewscapes that you can experience, from desert to mountain to golf course.

This is beautifully composed. The water, the statue, the gardens and rock in the background. Nice one, Julie.

The water in that fountain looks like it would be so cool and refreshing in the desert.

Of course anyone visiting this post is going to enlarge that photo, RIGHT!? What a magnificently beautiful environment. In Scottsdale, nature must be brought into the mix because is so incredibly stunning. Perfect black sculpture, too, complementing its surroundings.
Breathtaking...

Beautiful place. I agree, the fountain looks mighty refreshing.

It must be atmospheric to find all that water in the desert. I can see why it would be so appealing.

It sounds like a wonderful place to stay, even if you don't play golf. Love how you caught the fountain — the water looks frozen!

...aaahhh, so nice to get me a drop of water. Please excuse me for missing lately, but there were some problems (at least for me) opening your site. Nevertheless, am very grateful for the picture, as there are many months without rain ahead for us.
Please have a nice weekend.
