A nice series - the last one is extra special, in my view.

Lovely warm colours.
Last one stands out for me too.
Striking brilliance in that one, with the foreground foliage beautifully lit on the backdrop of a bursting sunset.
Well done.

the special touch.......the plants almost seem self illuminated

All has been said, a beautiful set. Don't know how you managed to keep the ghosts at bay on the last shot, but it is very well done.

Thank you JMR...

I won't lie to you - if you looked very very closely (at 100%) you might see evidence of some clone stamp work to kill the ghosts . I even had a UV filter on - no worries!.

Being the rebel I am, I'm going have to go the other way than what has been said. I really, really like #2 better than all of them.

Thanks photolady - I like that one too for the stark contrast between the arid soil and the marsh and lake just below.

Re: Oasis Landscapes...

Exceptional photographs.

#1. Very good decision of placing that post in the foreground to the left. Adds "depth" to the picture. Great landscape as well.

#3. My favourite of the series. Beautiful lighting and reflections. Well done.

#4. Also a fantastic image. However, maybe the upper-right area is a little too bright?
