A few Reflections- Plus

Most of you know by now that I love reflection shots.
Well,here are a few of mine.
This is our creek running through town.
The picture was taken at the beginning of June,2009.

Another view of the same creek,taken the same day.
No,this is not a reflection.
This is taken at the nature preserve NW of here,called Binney Corner.
Looking north,I noticed the wind turbines in the distance.
The cattle is grazing peacefully,oblivious of the technology nearby.
I like how the reeds look in the water.
The depth of the color is what caught my eye. This scene greeted me on a walk with some school children. I had taken one class to a farm and we were out walking in the pasture. At some time this wheel will have been useful,today it is resting in the shade. This made me think that we have times to work and times to rest. It is comforting to know that not only the steps, but also the stops of a good man are ordered by the Lord.

Hi Ruth, I thought it was a time to work and a time to PLAY.... ha.. Do you think we also need some REST in that equation??? ha

Love your photos--especially the reflection ones. But--the one with the cows grazing is also good.

Have a great evening--what's left of it.
Hugs,
Betsy

Love the reflections Ruth, but my favorite is the old farm machinery shot with the Birch trees..
Beautiful pictures all around though.

I too like reflection photos. Think all photographers do? I really do like the last photo, with the old farm equipment against those trees.

Hi, Ruth, As always your photos are beautiful. I especially like the green reeds and the deep blue water. Thanks for the nice quote, too.

Very nice series of photos. I'm quite of the reflection shots also. Very nice composition on the last photo.

Well said, Ruth...very comforting indeed! That last picture is beautiful! What are the white-barked trees there? Birch, dogwood? Very nice scene!

Hope you and the family are all well! Any update on the item you emailed me about several months ago?

Loved all the pictures... but the one of the old wheel is my favorite. Somehow when I pass a field with old machinery discarded and rusting there....I just have to pull over and take the shot. I never tire of seeing scenes like that.. Also enjoyed your 'Y' birds. The last photo of the YR Warbler is just darling.

Ruth: I also like reflection and the results you recieve when you make the capture. I have two favorites of these shots. The first is The Reeds, simple but beautiful. The second is The Wheel, what a neat capture with the (Aspens/Birch?) behind the shot.

I do like your reflection shots. The color in the last one is gorgeous. I also like your statement about our steps and stops. I need to remember that and enjoy the stops more.

Very artsy scenics Ruth. Bravo !

Michele said...

It's amazing how still that water is. The reflection is just perfect and I would so much like to sit on that grassy bank and just ponder about life. I find that I can do some of my best thinking and life decisions in areas such as that.

I hope you are doing well, my friend.
Thanks for all you say in advice when you come to visit... it means so much.

Hugs and kisses♥

Beautiful reflection shots Ruth, I think many of us are drawn to the reflections.

You may want to try an extention tube for macro shots. I the 25mm to be quite useful in converting the 100-400mm into a macro lens. I'm shooting a Kenko for as one reviewer stated, Kenko air is just as sharp as Canon air.

Just up at Country Captures, Reed Reflections.

Beautiful prairie scenes and lovely photos - much like paintings!!

Karin said...

Oh, thank you for sharing these fantastic shots! As we've traveled in rural areas I've noticed a lot more of these wind turbines and, like you said, the cattle grazing like the olden days. Love the pic with the birch trees and the old wheel.

Very much enjoyed the Y birds too! Such beauties - you've certainly opened my eyes. What an awesome Creator we have.
