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 web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! 
Fall is definitely here, but the temps are mild and that's good. By now all of your probably know that I have a "thing" about the water and my closeness to it before I moved is something that I do miss. So, when I have trouble getting some good reflection shots, I go back to my "water stash"! Hope you don't get tired of them!

Have a beautiful weekend, hopefully with some sun and reflections!

Penguins in a zoo always remind me of the old saying: "All dressed up and nowhere to go" :-)

Could never get tired of your water shots! Could (and do) get envious of your wonderful "stash" of photos. And also of your "filing" system (whatever the word is for digital storage)! Lovely shots, lovely reflections. Great shot of the penguin feeding.
