reflections in a bird bath


please click on photo to see reflection up close



so I stayed home yesterday, no black friday shopping for me. though I did go to the vitamin store and buy some vitamins, but other than that I worked in my garden and this is where I found a piece of the sky -in the bird bath. in case this photo looks familiar it is because I've posted photos of this bird bath before during spring and winter. I guess now all I need is a shot of this in the summer.

today's post is a part of "weekend reflections" hosted by james over at newtown area photo. please go here if you would like to join in the fun. hope your day is a good one.

I find this a very powerful image of an eye from middle earth looking out at me!! I love the angle and the reflections add just so much depth and mystery to the image.

Well spotted.

Good for you, staying home! I am cooking my Thanksgiving today. I like your birdbath reflection...hasn't rained here in a bit, so no puddles to reflet, and no birdbaths either!

What a great and creative reflection! What a piece of luck you have to have an eye for these special compositions.
Thanks for your visit. My banner is not a x-mas one. It's a Saint Nicholas banner. He happens to have his birthday in December on the 6th. He has nothing to do with X-mas which is a religious celebration for most of us. But thanks for the comment. Have a wonderful weekend!

This is wonderful! Good observation.

I didn't shop yesterday either. Too many crowds. :)

My links at James's blog are faulty and McLinky won't let me correct them, so here it is:

Very nice, Lily! I wouldn't shop on Black Friday either! Today was a beautiful day wasn't it? But very windy...right? :)

Nice shot! You never know where you're going to find your piece of sky.

Everything had started to blend in to the surroundings and that made it all look so natural.
