Love these serene photos - the reflection really magnified the sky's colors! One often hears the phrase "like ripples in a pond," about how our actions can be far-reaching... you and your turtle friend really brought that phrase to life. A lovely set of photos that provided a few moments of tranquility and beauty to all of us. Thank you for sharing them!
