Watery Wednesday - Cool reflections..





I think I've probably mentioned, in recent posts, the lack of rain where I live.

Well, a couple of days ago, that all changed, thanks to a depression parked of the California coast, which is making our atmosphere, here in the High Sierra Desert, a tad unstable.

That means thunder storms, and thankfully quite a bit of rain !!

Yesterday's rain left lots of puddles.

I found these reflections in the ones I saw in the parking lot, next to my bus stop, this morning.

Trees and sky in this one...


Part of the front of the Peppermill Casino, just across the street, is reflected here. I like the texture that the edges of the puddle give...


The Peppermill again.

I thought the reflections were rather cool :-)

I lost my orientation when looking at the pics - trying to find the ceiling in my room. Thank you - I like bold colored buildings - they bright the day - even a rainy day

Great reflections. The weather has been unusual for this time of year. When at the cabin we listen to KUNR and have heard a lot of extreme weather warnings.

These are great! Love the reflections. We've been a little cloudy down here but only a little rain in some areas. I could hear the thunder but that's about it.

I love reflections in all water - and these are really great! The second one is so beautiful composed, and the blue color from the sky is to die for!

That is quit a capture! Love it!

Karen: Thanks for posting. Yes we on the high desert here are getting the same rain. This is special. It makes the sage and juniper smell so fresh and means a lot of unique photos. Excellent reflections you've shot

April said...

Wonderful puddles and reflections! Unique and creative photos!

The pollen you asked about comes from the trees on the banks of the river and the trees around the lake.

Linda said...

Your puddle reflection is like a little fragment of a painting. Beautiful.

Bim said...

These are rather marvellous reflections. Really enjoyable to look at!

You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
