Weekend Reflections - New View

Chris removed the window screen upstairs so I could take sky and bird pictures. The next morning, when I opened the window and leaned out to snap a picture, I was surprised to see the reflection of the sunrise on the outside of the glass. Reflections make watching the sunrise even more fun. :D

To see more reflections, visit Weekend Reflections at Newtown Area Photo, hosted by James.

Every single item takes each opportunity to reflect its beauty.

You wouldn't miss it. It does make sure.

That's very clever and looks so perfectly beautiful!

The reflection seems to be the extension of the sunrise and it adds more beauty to the scene.

Wow..what a beautiful reflection of the sky. The colors are so intense and dramatic!

What an amazing illusion this created. Timing is everything. Another moment and it would have been gone forever. Simply gorgeous.

The reflection really does balance the photo. You can almost see the clouds moving and the sun getting ready for the day.

It is always a blessing to be able to greet the day with these views. The reflection made the scene a landscape view.

Enjoy your weekend!

It's such a perfect reflection if you hadn't told me I'd have thought it was just a wooden pole in front of that awesome sky. Nice to have the screen gone, at least for winter. Exceleent capture.
Isn't it great living in AZ.

Fortunate there was enough light to get the reflection. Beautiful sky colours.

The reflection is beautiful! The mountains and sunset have doubled in size in this well placed piece of glass. The Sonoran landscape is lovely, and the temps down there are warm (unlike us in New England). Stunning capture!
