Reflections on Burke Lake

We wanted to take a few photos today, so we visited Burke Lake Park. The water on the lake was rippling and reflecting a beautiful bluish and purple glow from the sky. Wading through the mud to the shoreline, we were able to capture this image.

This photo was taken on October 21, 2017. Specs are:

Canon SL1, ISO 100, f/8, 1/250 sec, 50mm.

Fellow Sightseers on the Road To Pushkar

One of the things that always astounds us as we travel in India is the number of monkeys by the roadside. This is one group we saw as we were being driven into Pushkar for the annual camel fair. It was interesting to observe that they were doing exactly what we were doing — sightseeing.

An Apple Reflects — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter A – Needs to start with the Letters Ap

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter A – Needs to start with the Letters Ap.

These apples were part of a window display of a shop in Paris, France. In addition to revealing interior lights and part of the shop’s offerings, the window reflects an undistorted view of a photographer and trees outside. The large red apple reflects a curved view of two photographers; the buildings, pedestrians, and street behind them framed by the edges of the window; and the other contents of the display.

Reflecting on a paper lantern

This is our entry in The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Reflecting.

This photo was taken in Hoi An, Vietnam.  The reflections in the river of the dragon and hanging lanterns help illuminate a boat seating three people. The woman in the middle seat is reflecting on a paper lantern which she will float in the river for luck.

Reflections

This photo was taken at low tide on Atlantic Beach, NC, facing west toward Fort Macon.  The receding waves make a wide, smooth surface that reflects the fluffy white clouds and blue above.

During the daylight, the swimmer sees trees reflected in and deflected by expanding ripples that disappear over the three infinity edges of the pool.
