A Quiet January Morning

A recent serene start to a day - a view from the east side of the deck.
 The reflections were the star of the show.
But just off the western side of the deck, some of the Whistlers had arrived and were awaiting breakfast - not so quiet after all. :)

Great reflections.I'm surprised the water in your pond is so high.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, what lovely captures!! There's so much colorful beauty in the Fall!! Strangely enough that's one thing that has been missing in our Fall this year!! We've had nearly a month with very little or NO sun and so much rain!!! I think I'm molding!!! I hope you've had a lovely weekend!! Thank you so much for sharing all the beautiful colors!! I hope you have a great new week! Enjoy!

Beautiful views indeed, great reflections!

S. J. Qualls said...

Pretty reflections! I had to chuckle at the mayhem of the ducks as compared to the peace and tranquility of the other view. I can imagine the noise!

joeh said...

Did not realize from other pictures that the pond is so big. No wonder you get so any ducks.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Oh, your Whistlers! They certainly own your pond.

Lynne said...

Beautiful quiet respite in the midst of all "the noise" of late . . .

Rita said...

I don't imagine a morning filled with whistlers would be a quiet one. LOL! :)

These shots convey a sense of quiet and a scene that is calming. That is until the whistlers start demanding breakfast.
