Spring Mountain Ranch State Park is located 15 miles west of Las Vegas, via Blue Diamond Rd., in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team “Lum & Abner,” German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes. (Official Web Site)

What a beautiful landscape and you captured it here in such a fine light, that highlights the trees so nicely. The reflections in the mirror-like water are lovely too.

Fine desert scenery on the afternoon light, shadows stretch diagonally across pic. space, and a small part reflection collected over water.
I think you might had given more attention here on those rocks to add its beautiful red/brown colors - but that a minor issue.

The light catching the bushes and the side of the distant rock make this a beautiful picture. A wonderful oasis in the desert.
Kind Regards, Ann

Fine view of the natural springs in the remote scenery of Red Rock Canyon, the trees highlighted by the sun and mirrored in the spring, and a craggy mountain backdrop.
