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!

As most of you know, I love the water and I've been cleaning up some photo albums and found some more favorites. Hope you enjoy them. Have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

The top photo is so amazing! I can tell what a huge expanse this is by the size of the buildings below. Great shots!

Jack said...

Wise quotations today, Sylvia. Go on out there and take some great photos this weekend.

Mama Zen said...

I adore the third one!

Gemma Wiseman said...

These watery images are stunning! I think my favourite is the first one with the drama of colour!

Dianne said...

It's amazing the things we find when we're having a photo clean up - yours are treasures.
Enjoy your weekend Sylvia and keep safe. xx

EG Wow said...

Three wonderful quotations to reflect on. Thanks, Sylvia! Glad you found these photos in your treasure trove.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Great quotes! Love your top photo with the sun's rays shining through - a beautiful scene.

Genie said...

These are all gorgeous. The second one is my favorite, but the first is a close second. Your are so great at this...and your quotes are superb. We are to get snow tonight...can you believe that? You all, maybe, but NOT here in VA. Can’t wait to go out in the morning. Hope I am not disappointed. genie

lotusleaf said...

All the pictures are beautiful and peaceful. I think you are going to lots of beautiful places these days!

Valerie said...

A beautiful selection Sylvia - especially the first one; those rays of hope shining through the clouds are stunning. Enjoy your weekend.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I really like that third image. The tree trunks are kind of snaky looking. Great quotes also!

Pat Tillett said...

As always, great reflections!
Also, LOVE THAT HEADER!

Ebie said...

The trees and foliage around the lake has lots of colors! The reflection glimmers!

Francisca said...

Oh, good on you for organizing your photos, Sylvia. We are the winners too. And again, can't argue with the wisdom.

RuneE said...

I like that last citation very much, and it fitted it photo very well - if you can't get to the birds, then let them decorate all the parallel lines in the photo. Almost like a wall-paper.

Pietro said...

Fascinating views, Sylvia, another great post!
Happy weekend!

Gattina said...

Beautiful reflections, but I miss "my" turtles !

Wenche said...

What Can I Say?

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.
