green reflections on a pond




























it's amazing how with just a bit of green the landscape becomes completely transformed. no doubt the sky's blue reflection is a big help too. I have never enjoyed spring as much as I have the last few years. I think it might coincide with my taking so many pictures, making me more aware of my surroundings.
this post is a part of weekend reflections hosted by james of newtown area photo. thank you james!

I think you're right about your reason for enjoying spring more lately—I too feel hyper-aware of every little change in the surroundings (another good reason for blogging?).

This is a beautiful place Lily... Oddly enough, it reminds me of a shoebox diorama I made in elementary school many moons ago...

Hilda said...

Just a few more weeks and this entire place would be lush! Have a wonderful weekend, Lily!

Noticing is important, I agree. By the way I just clicked on the link on your side bar , your book looks amazing. I shall see more of it in a while. Bravo.

The tangle of woods in the reflection look like a maze separated by sky! Beautiful!

A fine entry for Weekend Reflections!

Absolutely. Seeing the world through your lens makes you so much more aware of everything. I tried to stop the other day to photograph some trees in the rain but I would have been rearended! :(

Great photo, I can place myself in this photo and hear the frogs and birds.

Halcyon said...

I definitely see the world differently since I started blogging. I'm always looking for the next picture.

Beautiful reflection today. Happy weekend!

It looks so peaceful! You're so right about how looking through the eyes of a photographer enhances the way you experience the changing of the seasons. Spring is more glorious than ever!

Spring has changed a lot for me as well these past few years. Probably because I'm older, pay closer attention, learned so much about nature....keep on enjoying!! ~karen

Very nice shot Lily. This looks like some of the place where I've been taking walks.

Clytie said...

Very peaceful and beautiful. The greens of Spring are so bright and welcome.

Great reflection! The little green water plants (cattails?) add such a happy, hopeful feeling. Today's pansy shot is fabulous, too! Glad you enjoyed my SWF shot from the airplane--thanks for commenting! I took one coming home (but had the center seat) It's posted on my other blog (March to March) where I'm trying to post a photo a day--it does sharpen your eye!

I checked everything and admired everything :)

You are absolutely right I, myself have another view on my surroundings since I started (again) to take pictures!
