I wish you a nice week-end, dear Sylvia!

Jo said...

Omw, Sylvia, you are indeed a wonderful photographer. Your duck in the water is AWESOME and the photo of the boats. Hope you're having a great weekend. Jo

Julie said...

You have captured some nice looking light in your photographs today, Sylvia. The yachts are beautifully represented, the sunset is stunning, yet it is that duck that particularly captures my attention, with its splash of red, blue and yellow. Like many of us, he appears to be swimming around in circles. Wonderful capture from above, Sylvia.

Ms. Becky said...

I love that Japanese proverb. and excellent reflections - my fave being the duck with that spot of blue on its side. I hope your weather will warm soon. Keep your toes warm Sylvia, and happy weekend to you.

Leovi said...

Karen said...

Love the pictures and you are the master of the first quote!

NatureFootstep said...

my favourite is the reflections in the last shot. Maybe because I don´t see it much where I live.

Beautiful photos and words, Sylvia. Interesting we both chose ducks :-) The sunset is superb!

Pam said...

Al said...

Gorgeous photos, Sylvia, but I'm guessing they're not from the last couple of days based on what I've been reading in the news. And your Skywatch shots below are simply incredible. I hope you have a great weekend, and try to keep Sam warm!
