A Look Back For Weekend Reflections

Back to late October at the pond

 
A little foreground bokeh, thanks to the tree leaves
 
This is a reflection of Zim on the trail around the pond (the brown blob reflecting in the water)

Here's Gem on that same trail - a little easier to see.

More Gem reflecting through foreground weeds.

And more Zim moving into blues and greens.
Upside-down, blurry horses. Yeah, well...

with all those downed trees and logs, do they go down through them? i like the bokeh leaves a lot. and nothing better than a horse unless it is upside down horses.

Morning Tex I love these photos and the reflections. I also must tell you I loved playing the "Where's Waldo" with Zim and Gem. Have a nice weekend. Hugs B

A fine reflection series. The horses add bits of color and help us "see" the reflections better.

Twój staw jest bardzo naturalny. Roślinność rosnąca wokół pięknie się w nim odbija. Pozdrawiam.
Your pond is very natural. Vegetation growing around it beautifully reflects. Yours.

Tina´s PicStory said...

beautiful reflections! you went also back to summer like me :)

Robin said...

T, very pretty!

Linda said...

Boy, Theresa. You made me work for this one! I coldn't see Zim in the first photo until after I saw Gem in the next one. Then I found him. But finding him in the last photo was even more of a challenge. You'll be glad to know (I hope) that I did find him, though.

edenhills said...

Lovely shots that are kind of making me wish for warmer weather.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Hi! Lovely reflections , great capture .....

Hugs,
Mariette

pattisjarrett said...

"The brown blob" You'd better not let Zim hear you say that! I love the upside down horses, Gem does show up much better.Interesting reflections, and I like all the trunks in the first one.

Sketchbook Wandering said...

Even upside down those Zim & Gem are beautiful! It's nice to look back & to reflect on peace & calm...

Kerry said...

Beautiful, Teresa! Like paintings. But I half-expect an alligator to rise up.

Steve Gravano said...

Beautiful reflections, I had to really look for Zim, not as easy as Gem.

Genie Robinson said...

WOW! These are wonderful. I have to admit I had to look and look in the last shot to see Zim. The first picture is really pretty. I think it has to be my favorite. We are freezing here...sososo cold and more snow to arrive tomorrow. genie

I like your different way of taking shots of Gem!

Farm Girl said...

But I am always amazed at how still the water is and how nice the reflection is in the water.

Jo's World said...

I love these blurry upside down horse pictures. Kinda like working a jigsaw puzzle.

Even more I love Thelma Jeans coloration, one black ear, one freckled ear, and lots of all over body black freckles. She is just a beauty. Is she as sweet as she looks?

Cheers,
Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Randy said...

These are wonderful reflections.

Leave It To Davis said...

I feel cheated. How come everybodys water in this entire world reflects except mine! Pouting with my bottom lip out!

Brian King said...

Very clear reflections! The one of Gem is pretty cool! She looks like a ghost.

Indrani Ghose said...

I like how you have played with reflection shots. Great presentation.

Black Jack's Carol said...

What a perfect mirror ! This is a nice serie of pictures indeed ! I specially enjoy the first one, with the sun light on the right : it is a lovely composition, well equilibred.
