Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

photograph of trees reflected in a shallow creek

I had some other ideas for this week’s photo challenge but I was walking through the woods and the reflection of the trees in this stream caught my attention.  Perhaps too literal a treatment of this week’s theme but I liked the color and the stillness of the water at this spot.

American Coots

The American Coot is a rather funny looking bird.  They break the old rule that says “if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a duck”.  They are actually more closely related to rails and cranes.  When you get a good look at their feet, which are not webbed, you realize they must not be ducks.


Self Portrait

The bright red doors contrasted with the cool green grass and warm stucco wall brought together enough color and texture to peek my interest in this simple building.  The late afternoon sun and the white fence behind me provided the perfect lighting for this self portrait.


Melt Off

As I hiked past this puddle of melting snow I stopped to look at the reflections in it.  Snow was falling off the trees in clumps and caused ripples in the puddle.


Chihuly Boats

Goose Reflected on the River

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

There’s a railroad bridge that runs along part of the canal walk in Richmond, VA.  Seeing the bridge reflected in the James River Canal, I thought it deserved some photographic attention.
