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!
We've had sun for two days!! I'm ecstatic!  But I had already put my post together and besides, I didn't have a way to get to the harbor and that's where I wanted to be! Thank goodness for photo files!!!

most in life -- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -- are always attained
by giving them to someone else.    Peyton Conway

Pat said...

These are all beautiful reflections. My favorite quote is the last one. The second one is my second favorite--it's perfect for the duck tail sticking up from the water!

EG Wow said...

The Peyton Conway quote is so true! Ans I LOVE the sky shot that goes with it!

This is a marvelous post, even if you didn't make it down to the harbor. I like your up-ended duck, and the sunset and its reflection is gorgeous. Have a great weekend.

Magnificent green in the water, I love those beautiful reflections of the vegetation.

I hope that duck finds something interesting to eat down there. All beautiful images the sky in the last one is fabulous. Another new 'work of art' header I see Sylvia, your friend is very inventive, and funny!
