Weekend reflections.

For this weeks weekend reflectionshosted by James from Newtown Area photo, I chose two pictures I took some weeks ago when the weather over here was still good. The first photo I took because it has also reflections of the trees around the pond that you can't actually see.


 

 
For more reflections go here.

Great Captures, love the second on as well. The Water is so smooth, almost like a Mill Pond.

Really like the last one.

RuneE said...

It seems that you have the kind of winter we all should have - and magnificent for photography.

Reader Wil said...

Prachtige foto's,Riet! Heel hartelijki dank voor je felicitatie!

Hoi Riet,

Wat mooi de weerspiegeling van de bomen in het water!

Een gezellig Sinterklaasweekend. Vieren jullie het nog met de kinderen en kleinkinderen? wij krijgen zondag een huis vol. Ik heb er nu al zin in!

Lieve groet,

Madelief

I concur about the second photo. It has a formality that works well. Rembrandt popped into my head when I first saw it. The ducks are good, but the second one is superb.

Riet, meid wat maak je toch mooie foto's! Stuur je ze wel eens op naar de krant? Bij ons hier in de streek hebben we van die huis aan huis bladen waar ze de foto van de week in plaatsen. Die foto's zijn vaak heel wat minder dan die van jou hoor! Hoe is het met je das? Ik ben aangestoken door jou en een knalroze aan het breien. Echt zuurstok en ik moet er bijna de zonnebril bij opzetten, hihi.

Interesting to have a pink rose and then write Merry Christmas have never seen that before.

Love the reflection with the trees in to lines. MB

Rebecca said...

I like the drama creative in the 2nd shot. Nice.

Martha in PA said...

Both photos are beautiful, who doesn't love ducks, and you got a reflection of them as well!

The 2nd photo is stunning!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stine in Ontario said...

How interesting that the trees on both sides of the canal are in the reflection!

Miranda said...

Lieve Riet, altijd kom ik bij jou op de blog even thuis. Het zien van mijn thuisland doet soms meer met me dan me lief is, maar gelukkig kom ik lekker Kerst vieren bij mijn familie en vrienden. Groetjes uit Virginia

Thérèse said...

I can notice that one of the ducks is still performing it's morning ablutions... :-)

maryt/theteach said...

Riet, these photos are so beautiful! :)

Julie said...

The photograph of the reflections in the canal is stunning, Riet. There are so many ways that the photo shows perspective and pulls me into the image and along the canal. Truly gorgeous.

Crafty Green Poet said...

two lovely photos, I particularly like how the light is catching on the head of duck at the right hand side of the top photo

"Création" said...

Hoi Riet,

Beide zijn geweldig mooi, maar de eerste foto is extra bijzonder inderdaad om dat je wel de weerspeigeling ziet maar niet de bomen, PRACHTIG!!!

Enne.......deze mooie Kerst header is eing. Heerlijk sfeertje.

lieve groet Josephine

Ida said...

The second picture is great!
Beautiful reflection and picture! :)

Happy weekend!

Ann said...

The ducks, do they remain here in Winter?

I like the second photo with the trees and the drain in between.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Riet -- those reflections are beautiful. Is that a canal in the second picture? You had some nice Fall weather there and wonderful pictures to remember it.

storyteller said...

Lovely photos ... the second is stunning ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Carletta said...

Both are lovely but the second is a real beauty! Well done!

I like both shots--the first one has the tree reflections you mentioned, and also reflected ducks. The second one is beautiful, with color and line repeated in the reflection.
