String of Lights

This is a bridge in Tempe, Arizona with a string of white lights on it. It crosses the waterway and connects both sides of the Salt River. 

According to Wikipedia, “Tempe Town Lake is an artificial perennial reservoir located just north of Tempe Butte at the confluence of the intermittent Salt River and the ephemeral Indian Bend Wash in Tempe, Arizona. The reservoir receives much of its water from the Colorado River via the Central Arizona Project.”

White Wolves

White Wolves – Black and White Photography by Mary Mikawoz

White Wolves

This is a photograph of two white wolves I took. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff, Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest. It is just south of the Grand Canyon and north of Phoenix. I like they are relaxing after having feasted.

Roosevelt Reflection

Roosevelt Reflection – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Roosevelt Reflection

I took this photograph of the Roosevelt Lake Bridge and caught it just when it was reflecting perfectly in the water. 

According to the history of the Roosevelt Lake Bridge, “The $21.3 million bridge was built to take traffic off the top of Roosevelt Dam. Roosevelt Lake Bridge is the longest two-lane, single-span, steel-arch bridge in North America. The bridge, spans 1,080 feet across Roosevelt Lake providing two-way traffic.”

Roosevelt Dam

Roosevelt Dam – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Roosevelt Dam

I took this photograph on the inside curve of the Roosevelt Dam. I like the angle of nature on of cliffs on the side and the curved, concrete dam in the middle. 

According to Wikipedia, “Theodore Roosevelt Lake is a large reservoir formed by Theodore Roosevelt Dam on the Salt River in Arizona as part of the Salt River Project. Located roughly 80 miles northeast of Phoenix in the Salt River Valley, Theodore Roosevelt is the largest lake or reservoir located entirely within the state of Arizona.”

Rainbow Bridge of Thor

Rainbow Bridge of Thor

This is the rainbow bridge where the local passenger light rail transit system is called Valley Metro goes. It has a full spectrum of rainbow colours from Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. I thought I was being unique by calling it the “Rainbow Bridge” but it is actually called the “Rainbow Bridge of Thor.” It is on the Tempe Town Lake on the Salt River at night in Tempe, Arizona.

Grackle

Grackle

This is a female Great-Tailed Grackle found in Arizona. Females are brown whereas the males are black. I love they way the leaves softly and gently frame the bird. She is enjoying the shade. 

According to the Audubon Field Guide, Great-Tailed Grackles are omnivores and their diet is varied including “many insects, also spiders, millipedes, snails, crayfish, tadpoles, small fish, lizards, eggs and nestlings of other birds, and sometimes adult birds. Also eats a wide variety of seeds, waste grain, berries, fruit, and nuts.”

In the Distance

In the Distance

This is a photograph where it leads your eye along the concrete wall, across the waters to the bridge in the distance. This image was taking at sunset in Tempeh, Arizona, USA. 

I have called it “In the Distance” as it leads your attention into the distance.

Green Cactus

Green Cactus – Photograph by Mary Mikawoz

Green Cactus

This is a photograph I took in the Arizona dessert around Mesa. These cacti are found pretty much everywhere as the land is very dry. 

According to Wikipedia, “Cactus stems are often ribbed or fluted, which allows them to expand and contract easily for quick water absorption after rain, followed by long drought periods. Like other succulent plants, most cacti employ a special mechanism called “crassulacean acid metabolism” (CAM) as part of photosynthesis.”
