Yes, I can see it was a surprise - that green area in the middle of the barren mountains.

Don't lose your ball otherwise you will need climbing gear.

Great shot Sandy, though I think a golf course in such an arid location is just ridiculous, what a waste of precious water!

That lush green of the fairway is so unexpected in such a dry desert environment, Sandy: bet they have the sprinklers out most of the time to keep the grass looking like tis.
Lovely texture in this elevated capture of the golf course.
Nice detail. Well done. WesternRed.

I like the compo, the space scaled by the figures and the surprising golf course located in it. It's great!

How strange! Why on earth would anyone put a golf course there? The grass does look amazingly green and there's even a large rusty tank for the RAS members! Well seen and captured.

I'm envious of that sunshine at the moment. There hasn't been much of that about here in Devon recently- or all year in fact. Still, 2013 is another year .... A great shot
Happy New Year, Sandy

An oasis in the wilderness - where does the water supply come from? the lake? Anyway makes for an interesting shot.

How bizarre!! Lovely light and depth with which you've caught it, Sandy.

29 Dec 2012 10:42AM
excellent find and capture the green of the fairway is very much incontrst with the starkness of its surroundings

What a view. What a golf course

Nice shot Sandy, the golf course looks so out of place in these surroundings!

Love the juxtaposition Sandy ( how much water does it take to keep it green in this arid landscape !!) An environmental statement ?

Great shot, Sandy love the contrast between the green of the golf course and the bare surroundings.

This golf course looks rather out of place in the middle of the desert. This is a superbly composed landscape and the view is very spectacular
