Reflected Skies

Sometimes I get a picture or two I just really like.  These are of an ordinary location, the flooded lake along Wodehouse Creek at Sideroad 7A, but the lighting was so good I thought they were worth a post.  I've got a dozen almost identical shots, at different seasons and over several years, but none with reflected skies like this!

Shot partly into sun facing south, this picture is a little darker than the next.

This one was shot with the sun behind me.  And the water surface is partly blurry a bit because there's a thin skim of ice.

But I wouldn't want you to get the wrong impression that Grey County April skies are always (or even frequently) blue!  These two show the more typical grey skies we've been having recently.

They were taken in Memorial Park in Meaford this afternoon.  Water levels are still high.

Mrs. FG had 'Quilting Time' in Meaford today, so I went along just so I could go for a proper walk - the trails and the woods around here are so wet and sloppy it's almost hopeless!  And I did get for a good hour-long brisk walk on a good trail which made it enjoyable.  And we got to drop in and visit our new-born great-niece as well.  Bonus!

  3. #1 is my pick for today, truly wonderful reflections from sky to tree to water, apart from those magic words " Quilting Time". a bonus for both of you.

    Sometime I'll post a picture I really like and it gets just a few comments and then I'll post one that I think is just okay and everyone seems to like it. : )
