trees in the puddle

I live near a floodplain - so whenever it has rained I'll get to see some rather good reflections in the enormous puddle which is otherwise known as 'the meadow':




There are more weekend reflections at James' blog.
Or if you have some time to spare and love the Andes or the rainforest please visit my picture book about my fieldwork in the Peruvian cloud forest:

I'm not a great fan of reflections-in-water pictures but this is an exception, I think because it looks more like wind rushing past the trees than a reflection of them . . .

Indeed, it's the kind of photo I could look into for a long time - and still come back.

I've no idea which way up I am viewing this pic. Great picture.

That is a really nice looking puddle. The reflection is amazing. The water has almost an icy look to it.

Nice way to abstract. I like what you've done.

That's a good shot!
Thanks for your comments on my sunset & convex reflection. I hope to discipline myself to do a post about the thing I was standing in...
I liked your book, it's too bad the money ran out for continuing the research. I think National Geographic would be interested in this type of project-did you ever ask them about working with you on it?

What an extraordinary photo and the reflections is even superb!

I will head yonder and vote for you!

I like the way the grass enters into the reflection - gives a nice effect.

Re your comment: No farms, no sewage works - but a new, major road further down.

Oh wow. That's an impressionist painting. Gorgeous.

wonderful reflections, beautifully composed shot

Impressionist painting was my thought as well - it's easy to imagine thick strokes of paint on the canvas.
Super reflection!

That's a great shot. Puddle pictures are tricky.
