Am I delirious? I think I see Palms in this harsh landscape. This must be the Fortynine Palms Oasis.

Just on earth, life grows everywhere! Amazing yes, a spot of green on the rocks.

Whatever the diagnosis, it truly appears to be an oasis, and most beautiful.
The mountain looks like gravel and is so fantastic, the colors are brilliantly
vivid in this superb photo. 5***** 's !!~

un peu miteux cet oasis !
21 Jun 2011 5:39am
This is an interesting composition as well as the subject. I like how the overall sharpness of the image sort of blurs into color patterns, well done
21 Jun 2011 6:16am
Fabulous image...superbly seen...love the tones and textures Steve!
21 Jun 2011 6:19am
Love the detail and the shot.
21 Jun 2011 6:49am
unbelievable!..the palm trees stay alive from a bunch of rocks
21 Jun 2011 7:14am
Certainly a mirage Steve. How weird to see them here in the middle of such dry place !
The consequence of too much heat ? I see the same, and yet it's raining on Paris ;)
21 Jun 2011 7:34am
C'est exactement ce que je me suis dit en venant sur ta page "un mirage ?"... en tout cas c'est toujours exceptionnel de venir par ici... voyage-voyage ! Bisou

Incredible and quite unreal perspective! Amazing capture, Steve!
21 Jun 2011 1:10pm
Fantastic textures and certainly not a place one would expect to see palms. Nice shot!
21 Jun 2011 1:17pm
Unbelievable.....:-00000! Nice shot:-)

Splendid "oasis" in this desert of stones, a magnificent image. Good day.
21 Jun 2011 1:39pm
This is an amazing shot with the juxtaposition of palms in the most unlikely looking place. Nice capture.

Great texture, color and detail. Impacting.
21 Jun 2011 7:11pm
It seems an oasis! :)
21 Jun 2011 8:43pm
And here the lush palms in the middle of this inhospitable landscape. They seem out of place but welcome. Nice capture.
21 Jun 2011 9:12pm
Such sharp and bright detail... very striking... and the little clump of life just hanging on there!
21 Jun 2011 9:13pm
This is amazing, beautiful landscape!
21 Jun 2011 10:07pm
Hmm, is there really any water flowing there? Interesting spot, nicely done.
21 Jun 2011 11:00pm
@Viewfinder: I saw no flowing water when I was there. But, there is water not far below the surface to support the rather abundant plant life.
Excellent find..great capture and great shot! thumbs up!

Fantastic angle Steve, and the scale is just amazing.
22 Jun 2011 1:52am

That's amazing. The intense textures of the rocks are incredible.
22 Jun 2011 6:39am
you have captured this harsh environ. so well
all those wonderful textures with just that tiny patch of green
22 Jun 2011 8:29am
Sure looks like a mirage here!
22 Jun 2011 9:37am
Quite interesting and curious to see where those trees have grown!
Evidently even in this barren environment there is some water.
Good light and vertical framing.
23 Jun 2011 3:31pm
