watery -

I feel a bit washed out and watered down by all the rain and river in the last couple of weeks - hence this week's water photo is nothing but a reflection of my work place. I think it lacks enthusiasm...or maybe that's just how I feel:



Generally, it's really quite pretty there:


Back to Watery Wednesdays, hosted by 2SweetnSaxy, for lovely water photos from all parts of the world.

I like the first one. It's the texture of the water plus the sun's reflection that create such a unique photo.

Send some rain our way.

Both beautiful shots! And the first one really fits my mood also! But I do love the composition on the second, and the little qute chickens! What a great place!

Pacey said...

That's a great shot, not lacking enthusiasm :)

Wonder Turquette said...

Very nice shots! Especially the first one is adorable! Very beautiful reflection!

Ebie said...

Ooh, I love the first photo. That splash of rain makes it a great painting!

I think it must be your mood if you can't see how stunning that reflection is. It looks like an oil painting. Or how pretty that 2nd shot is with the blue flowers in the grass. They're both beautiful!!

Hey Bim, tell you what? You may be feeling washed down. Your picture above is kind of having an abstract feature on it. I saw a man's head with thick hair and eyes. Maybe my eyes are just too sharp that I can see objects behind those reflections. Take a close look again. Nice view too!

Love these photos! The first one creates a texture like impasto painting. I like the mood too. It looks like pent up energy and the sun breaking through the clouds makes me think of inspiration breaking through.

Very nice shots. Today I also took a picture of a family of Canada Geese.

Princess Sarah said...

I don't feel a lack of enthusiasm when I look at these photos. I think they're wonderful!

Marie Reed said...

They are beautiful but it's been raining buckets here too so I know what you mean about feeling dreary!

Karen said...

I really like both the photos...

It's very cool how the clouds and sun are reflected in the water, in the first one ... and the leaves lying on the wooden railing.

I like all the details in the second one .. the upturned rowboat ... the mother goose and her goslings...

Very cool !!

Arlene said...

Beautiful shot of nature! It rained over here too since the weekend thus am posting flood waters. :)

Happy WW!
