Water, Water Everywhere


Today's theme for Arizona bloggers is water.  

This photo is from the South Pacific, which is a good place for the solar eclipse. I will post a solar eclipse photo for the August 1 City Daily Photo Theme Day.  I will share the details involved in how to photograph the sun and moon at the same time during the eclipse.

For now, I thought you would like to see the beautiful water scene that I took off of the patio of the overwater bungalow I stayed in when visiting Tahiti.  Gorgeous water and warm too.

In contrast to the South Pacific where water is everywhere, Arizona is a desert and we conserve water and transport water hundreds of miles to sustain our people and economy.  The Valley of the Sun still uses the ancient Hohokam (Native American) irrigation canals to transport water. These canals have been expanded and continue to be used  by Salt River Project.

Please check out the water theme photos of the other Arizona daily bloggers.  Go to Phoenix Daily Photo for the links.

Good morning,
what a beautiful picture today. Matisse once wrote,that 'blue' enters the soul.
Entering your site was accompanied with much difficulties lately, it opened not at all, leaving alwaysa small window, telling me that it wasn't possible and closed all.
