Two kinds of reflection, really.  The obvious kind, with clouds and trees reflected in the near dead calm river on a cool summer morning.  But also the kind of contemplative thoughts such a scene might trigger in an onlooker who has no desire, and no pressing need to be anywhere else.

April 26, 2012    “A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden     As hubby and I were out enjoying a wonderful and lovely afternoon ride around the backroads near our home, the light and colors of the wonderful reflections in this little pond drew me in, and I had to ask him to make a U-turn (we do lots of those for photo) with the motorcycle and go back so I could get some shots.    Even though I've been by this little pond a few times, there was just something about the light on this afternoon that made me want to go back and get some shots of it.  I love the way the greens of the trees and the blue from the sky mixed in the reflection.  Hope you enjoy it too!    Have a "blue sky" kind of day today my friends,    Linda    SOOC

Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
10-29-12  Berries. Thank you for welcoming me into this community yesterday and for all your kind and encouraging comments!
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
July 28 2014 Hosta in bloom
Everyone seems to be posting pictures of purple coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea), so I decided to add my take on this popular, photogenic flower.  Heaven knows, I've taken lots of photos of it, not just this year, but every chance I get.  DP202-2014  Posted July 21; processed July 20. I know I could have cloned out the orange top of the flower in the lower right, but in the end, I decided I kind of liked it there.  It reminds me that I was photographing a large patch of this particular species, and not just a few isolated stalks.  You can see part of the patch here (http://smu.gs/1yPwDRz) and a blossom plus bee close-up here ( http://smu.gs/1yPwVYC )  Traffic flow island, Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor Taken July 18, 2014 Title:  Getting in on the Act  Yesterday's logo challenge was fun, but I mistakenly thought my own entry would be easy to guess.  Next week I might err on the side of the super obvious.
This week I will be doing a series of photos of Old Abandoned Trucks. Here is a couple of two Chevy pickups made between 1947 thru 1953.
