[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Corn Creek, about 30 northwest of town, is a tiny spot of green in a vast sea of Mojave Desert Scrub that attracts desert birds and migrant species like a magnet. Of all the places to watch birds around Las Vegas, historically this has been the best place to find desert species, seasonal migrants, and unusual migrants -- this is where the birds showed up. Water brings in desert species, trees attract migrants (fruit and cover). (From birdandhike.com)

Hello Eleu,
picturesque the view as the presentation of this pond with the wild grass to surround it and the created reflections to make the image even more effective.Beautiful place to visit it someone to enjoy the Nature.


Generally an oasis is a beautiful nature's phenomenon in the desert - but this spot must have a special charm, that you managed to show so beautifully, Eleu.
Taken from an exquisite point that added marvelous mirror effect on water.
My cong.'s for this beauty.

Ciao Eleu
un piccolo angolo ritagliato nell'aridità del deserto.
Sembra impossibile che a Las Vegas ci sia una tale vegetazione con gamma di colori così ampia.
Bella la composizione e notevole la definizione.
Ciao e buona serata

Hi Eleu
Et bien l'automne au Nevada donne de merveilleuse couleurs, belle vue sur le coin d'eau, les reflets et les feuilles dorées
Belle soirée

Hi Eleu,
Quite succesful simple nature shot combining so many autumn colours with the blue reflecting from the sky. I could well imagine just standing over there, relaxing and watching if some birds happen to come by.

Hello Eleu very good picture of this beautiful and interesting composition with this portion of oasis, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with an interesting reflection, good sharpness, nice light, color and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hi Eleu,a beautiful autumn composition,full of te typical colors of this season and magnificent reflection too,very high brightness and very well exposed.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Howdy Eleu,

Fine view of Corn Creek pond with water plants surrounding and mirrored in its glassy water. Water is perhaps the most important factor in our desert climates. This scene seems far away from Vegas's glitter and population, yet a welcome oasis also for humans.
Water is the main factor that permitted Las Vegas to be created when Hoover Dam was built, then of course the State of Nevada's legalization of gambling.

regards Ryszard

Ciao Eleu, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, excellent clarity, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Eleu
Love how everything just seems to turn golden after absorbing the light of day. An oasis away from harsh landscape and what a fabulous location you found with all those colours and very well captured in this shot. It could prove interesting being at this location to record different lighting conditions throughout the day...early morning/late evening light could be very interesting.....well done, Congrats
Best regards

Water allows life in Mojave desert as in all arid areas of the planet Eleu, bird sighting is a really good hobby to pratice outdoor, that ecosystem is a refuge for migrant birds
