I think you are very smart to grab your camera when tension rises in life! A camera just magically steers you to beautiful places. And, I love ducks upside down...so cute!

Gattina said...

Very nice pictures, but the last one is just adorable with the little butt in the air, lol ! Today it's the first time that it is summer again, it's very warm ! I thought already we were in autumn !

Sara Chapman said...

Sunsets and brilliant skies below, so beautiful. Always something lovely to photograph if you look up.

James said...

Your golden reflections on your first photo set got me all introspective and your duck made me laugh. The whole gamut of emotions in about two seconds.

Carletta said...

Oh so lovely Sylvia! The first two are soothing to look at and could certainly quiet internal frustrations. Little ducky brings a smile and a laugh which is always good medicine.
Here's hoping you have a wonderful frustration free weekend!

Woody said...

You have a subtle reflection in the first, a very sharp reflection in the second and something in between for the third, clever!

Pam said...

Sylvia, I enjoyed all of your reflection shots. My favorite is the duck tail waving in the air while he feeds ;)

Have a delightful weekend.

Pat said...

First photo: stunning
Second photo: beautiful
Third photo: hysterical!

ruma said...

The setting sun is heartwarming very much.
And the reflection is peace and quiet...


Happy weekend.

RogerB said...

Love the sunset. Have a great weekend!

Dimple said...

I think my favorite is the upended duck...
Thanks for visiting!

Al said...

That sunset is fantastic. I always love seeing all the water in your area, it's something I miss living in a very dry part of the country. Have a great weekend, Sylvia.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Lovely Sylvia -- beautiful sunset and water; the duck picture is funny -- that's how I usually see them.

Have a wonderful Weekend.

Pietro said...

Very nice reflections, Sylvia! I enjoy these pictures!
Happy weekend :-)

Carol said...

Wow, great sunset shot! But oh that duck....

SandyCarlson said...

These are utterly incredible, Sylvia. Hot and cool and perfect.

Tammie Lee said...

that bird photo made me smile. Lovely reflections too.

Ann said...

I like that diving duck. Reminds me of when I was young when we kept ducks next to a swollen creek. We didn't know what the duck was doing that for.

Kay said...

That is such a satiny sky... so beautiful. Your shy duck is adorable. Have a wonderful weekend, Sylvia.

Vernz said...

i so love the ducky .. bottoms up... so inspiring Sylvia.. thanks for dropping by Woman’s elan vital

Francisca said...

The consensus appears to be that your duck is a winner, and I couldn't disagree! Adorable. I'll never tire of gorgeous sunsets and reflections in nature, either. Your SkyWatch cloud photos are a lovely accompaniment to the Mark Twain quotes - he's a favorite of mine too (I've often repeated his, "It's better to remain silent...". Have a grand week, Sylvie

Cildemer said...

Very beautiful reflections! What a nice sunset and a funny duck;o)

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day, Silvya*******


Ps: I've added two more photos of the swans so you can see how much closer I got to them;o)

LadyNoor said...

I love sunset, but that bottoms-upped duck is the winner! :)

JM said...

Three great shots, Sylvia. The one on top is amazing!

Eden said...
