Reflections of Nature

reflection 01                Yours truly enjoying puddles of rainwater

           Here, a little ice had formed, but it melted quickly.

Tree branches reaching across the tea-colored creek.  Now I’m not sure if they are reflections or shadows…maybe both!

Lovely reflections in the puddle and creek. I really like the reflection of the saguaro in the puddle because there is only a hint of the saguaros above the puddle.

James said...

Each one is a very strong photo and they really look great!

I love your images from the desert. I had no idea there was so much color in a desert landscape, but you show it to us again and again. The blue sky in that first shot is just breathtaking. Kathy

Martha Z said...

Your desert should bloom with all that water.

John McDevitt said...

The first shot really grabs me -- excellent!!!

Ebie said...

I love both the shadows and the reflections! Hoping to see desert blooms with all the rain!

Enjoy your weekend!
