Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the post title and sign up to play with us! And, yes, still another week of  GRAY! So, let's see what I managed to dig out of the files for today!

Long on the wave reflected lustres play.

Is it possible I am the first one here?! :-D You done good with digging in your archives... the gold sun reflected on the water is awesome... and I so agree with both Cornelius and Confucius... great choices!

George said...

Your first picture is absolutely gorgeous. This picture deserves a frame.

Malyss said...

A golden sea in the first, the ghost of a tree in the second one... this serie is very magic!

Gattina said...

Beautiful skies, and they also look a little warmer than mine !

I like the one lonely little boat in the huge golden sea.

Karen said...

What a gorgeous golden sea. The second one looks like a faded watercolour painting, lovely. I love the bottles(?) reflected on the tablecloth.
Great captures.

Thom said...

These are just gorgeous my friend. I love the color of the water. And the one with the Christmas tree is just the best. Very well done. Have a wonderful weekend my friend :)

of course the golden sunset or -rise is gorgeous, but I really like that tre reflected in the window. :)
Have a great weekend.

Tracy said...

I really think in the last picture it looks as if the shadow is bowing down before the 'king' red leaves and asking for a blessing!
the sun is absolutely stunning!

Hi Sylvia...I hope your Holiday Season is the Merriest! Even with gray days, you've come up with inspirational photos. Love the Christmas Cactus...the green shadow is perfect with the red of the bloom. It's been a cold sunless day in Texas, and I've been sitting by the fire watching old Christmas Movies! Tis the Season! Merry Christmas!

Three different takes on reflections. All different.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Three great photos... I do love the image of the tree in the second photo and the blues and greens of that last one.

Woody said...

The water reflection is very muted, which makes it that much more beautiful. I like the little waves too.

Ann said...

How did you make the falling snow flake?

Your files are filled with lovely reflections -- and winter in Seattle is a time to look back at brighter days.

I love this header best of any that your friend has designed for you.

That Confucius quote really struck a chord with me. I love the reflection of the Christmas tree with the sky. Terrific idea.

Shirley said...

Sylvia, your first photo is my favourite. It should be titled Golden Celebration like the rose!

Merry Christmas!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
