Lakes, Mountains and Palm Trees – Two Featured Art Prints

The attached prints were created from views around one of the lakes in our community. Our community has two lakes (yes, man made…this is Arizona after all) with palm trees lining the shoreline of the park that goes entirely around both of them. The lakes sit side by side with a large wide sidewalk circling both and connecting to each other. Great walking, running or biking as the total distance around both is about 3 miles. What I love is from the northwest shore of both lakes is the view of the Estrella Mountains as depicted in these prints.

The first print is a small beach on what is called South Lake, with picnic pavilions and other amenities for kids and adults as part of the park encircling the lakes. The second art print is from the perspective of the northwest shore looking across the lake at the Estrella Mountains. The mountains are a very rugged and dramatic range creating the perfect background view. Thoughts?

      Thank you very much Darlene!! The landscape is beautiful, especially considering it’s a desert….the Estrella Mountain Range is really beautiful all on it’s own. Thanks for stopping by!!

      Thanks Nancy!! Not sure if you have been in our area, but the community sits behind the Estrella Mountains and that is our eastern view towards Phoenix. Thanks for stopping by!!

      Not just one, but two….the lakes have been here for almost 20 years….the water is recycled water from the city and used in the irrigation of common areas throughout the community. Does seem a little weird to have two lakes in a desert setting.

        We did have a big adventure Kirt. Wonderful to see a new part of the world. The people were so kind and welcoming, even though often we had no shared language.

        πŸ™‚ Brea really enjoyed Cambodia when they were over there filming the first season of Expedition Unknown…she would love to go back…..found it fascinating!! Glad you had a safe trip and found the people so welcoming!!! Now you get to come home to winter…..must be why we have so many β€œAlberta” plates down here this time of year!! 😎

        Oh it is a big shock to be sure. I can certainly see why people want to fly south like the birds. Cambodia left me feeling torn. Such friendly people and so much historically recent horror. The garbage both in urban areas and rural is astonishing. A lack of education about environment and lack of infrastructure. I’m still mulling it all over.

    This is so vivid and beautiful Kirt. Thank you for sharing! In my part of Canada we always just seem to associate Arizona with the Grand Canyon. In 1985 (this is aging me), I drove through the state with a friend and was really amazed how beautifully rugged and mountainous this state is in places. Estrella Mountains….I never knew what they were called! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by Carl. The state really has a diverse topography from the desert valley that Phoenix is located in to the mountains stretching across the northern and eastern part of the state and of course the Grand Canyon in the NW part of the state. Thanks for stopping by Carl!! Good to hear from you!!

    Like a mirage in the desert, Kirt!! Beautiful πŸ™‚
    I am so spoiled by living near the ocean my whole life…but a lake in the desert is a good thing.
    Hope you are well, my friend!
