I'll never tire of seeing your skies, Sylvia, whether you shoot them looking uo or down (reflected), but especially now when I am in a place where the sky seems to be permanently hidden by a shroud of haze. And I couldn't agree more that Spring tranquilizes! Keep shooting and smiling!

That first shot is a wonderfully dramatic capture Sylvia - love the burst of light "pouring" out over the water. Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. Happy Easter weekend.

Lovely shots - really love your 2nd one with the trees reflected in the water.

Your captures of the golden sun are magical. Mrs. Duck seems to be enjoying the tranquility of the moment.

A sunny spring day is the best medicine you can have! I hope that you are having a good weekend Sylvia. I imagine you up on the rooftop with your camera.
