Disturbed reflections....


I was almost inspired to write a poem about the tranquility of the scene above at Neil Hawkins Park ..but on 'reflection' I thought it may be too soon since the last :) besides seconds after I took the first shot a 'flotilla of Coots' landed robustly creating ripples on the lake and swam swiftly, their white bills gleaming, towards me, quite a sight! Here we are Saturday once again, only 165 days until Christmas, knew that would cheer you up :)) Have a great weekend, take care and stay safe.....click here to see more of James's Weekend Reflections.

  7. The ripples add an impressionistic quality to the reflection. Laughed at the visiting flotilla of coots coming right to you.

  9. It is a place to get your creative skills twitching. Great colour in the reflection. The birds arrived on cue for your shutter finger.

    The 'as if you were there' feeling to them. Great stuff.

  22. Great series...that first shot is so beautiful and the reflections so nice...and the birds may be coots but they're a hoot!

    Christmas? Are you crazy? Say it isn't so! We've got a TV station playing Christmas movies all through July. Makes me physically ill! :)

  25. I especially like the photo of ducks taking off from the water.

    Once I was slow with the shutter and I missed the duck, but got a nice shot of the splashes in the water where he was.
