Riverbed reflections.....

I did initially think of making this image into a black and white for a more dramatic look, but I just couldn't bring myself to take out the blue of the sky reflected into what, with a long hot summer approaching very quickly, will soon be a dried up river bed with no possibility of any reflections at all....right decision.....? I'm really enjoying catching up on all your posts that I've missed over the last few days.....Have a fab weekend.....!

  2. Fabulous reflection! It's been quite grey here for the last week so it's nice to see some blue sky.

  8. The sky is a more beautiful, deeper, richer shade of blue when reflected in water.

  9. I think both would work but they would be quite different photos.

  10. I like both noir et blanc and couleur photos... You could post both! This is so serene somehow!

  14. I'd have hated to miss this gorgeous blue in this photo! Although now that you mentioned it, it does make me curious to see this great shot in B&W! Maybe you can do another post in B&W, too? Pretty please? ;D

  21. En noir et blanc, l'impression est beaucoup plus sinistre.
    Brrrrrrrr!

  23. Welcome Grace!!!!I ´´m glad to see you well, take care with your eyes.
    I like both, but I prefer black& white, it looks a jackson pollock...
    Hug, best wishes...

  24. Both great but I think the colours do the scene more justice!

  25. Thanks, my niece is very cute :)

    I like the first riverbed reflection a lot. Great colors here.

    have yourself an awesome weekend!

  26. Both work- the b& w looks more abstract and as if it is the sky and not sky reflected in water. A win-win situation!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The coloured photo gives a magical depth to the reflection while the black and white seems to focus on the wild tangle of foliage which seems to travel in the sky! Both are fascinating!

  28. I prefer the color version, but it's nice to see them both.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Both are great, the B&W for the drama look, but the color one in this case is more appealing! Have a wonderful Sunday.
