A Forrest on the Water (Weekend Reflections # 6)

I was happy last week when I looked into this stream and saw all of the colorful trees reflected. Since I haven't touched up these photos I will submit them to Jan's meme Straight Out Of The Camera Sunday aka SOOC Sunday. It's hosted at Murrietta 365.

"Weekend Reflections" rules are simple:

1)Post a reflection photograph

2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky

3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.

4)Comment on other Weekend Reflections participant’s blogs.

Feel free to be creative. Remember this meme is for any type of reflection.
This meme runs Friday 11ish am EST through Sunday, so feel free to link your post anytime within that time frame. Join the fun!

You have caught the autumn very well, colours, peace, river, reflections.

I will have some reflection up in about eight and a half hours :-), but will nor be able to log before morning.

Pacey said...

Hi James, I wonder why Mcklinky list says it's now closed.

Icy BC said...

Beautiful photos, James! They're spectacular..

(and I echo Pacey's comment)

Ebie said...

Beautiful photos again, James. I'd like to be in that countryside! Mcklingy is closed, may be you need to adjust the date?

Mine is already posted.

Carletta's Captures said...

Beautiful!
I went to the forest too.
This is so clear - I need some practice. :)

Mine's up - I'll come back by to check on Mr. Linky.

Ellie said...

Masterful autumn reflection. I'll join later, but my mom Nadine is ready and sends greetings from Bulgaria

James said...

MckLinky is okay now. I had the wrong date set, sorry about that.

Crafty Green Poet said...

gorgeous photos, I love autumn colours and they're twice as beautiful reflected...

Terri said...

Ah, the only thing better than fall colors is a reflection of fall colors! Well done.

Sunny said...

Such a peaceful Autumn scene, very lovely.
Thank you for your kind comments. I really don't travel far for my pictures, a lot are within a 10 to 20 mile radius of my home and we are almost on the Vermont border, which makes for a nice Sunday ride. A lot of my older posts are from my travels across the country to the west coast.
Sunny :)

Sistertex said...

Super! These are some of my most favorite shots to be sure. I love fall (have I mentioned that before?) ;)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Way cool, James!

Cezar and Léia said...

wow James!
This place is from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" scenery?
Magnificent!
Congratulations!
Léia

Thérèse said...

I wish I could walk along this stream... on water too :-)

Riet said...

HI James.I made a mistake. I entered mr linky and I am nr 11 but I put on reflection in stead of Riet, Holland. I can't change it from my side. Maybe you can?
Sorry about that.

Dina said...

Wonderful mood in your pictures.
And I love seeing the veins in the leaves. :)
Having been outside of my Jerusalem for two weeks, I finally have some water reflection photos--on the Sea of Galilee.

Riet said...

Beautiful, wonderful photo's. There is even colour in the reflections. So special.

Malyss said...

Each of your picture is like a XIXth century painting, full of colors , with such a wonderful light..I'd like to get lost there!
My own picture today is the perfect contrary! Ü
Have a nice week-end!

awarewriter said...

The second photo is perfect -- right out of the camera James. Nice work. The first one just needs a bit of a boost.

Carolyn Ford said...

Those are spectacular scenes, both above and on the water! Gorgeous!

Regina said...

Delightful scenes! Awesome.

Hi James,

This is fantastic. The reflections, the details, the water, the colours..... It's beautiful.

Great shots!

Best regards
Asta

Tom said...

Hi James...
These are very nice reflection, a double dose of Autumn in one picture.

I'm late joining in... had to miss my Bench posting out this week... but will make up for that with Rune next week.

Lois said...

The water looks like a mirror!

Martha in PA said...

Gorgeous. I took one last weekend with this meme in mind!!

Greyscale Territory said...

Dramatic reflection of autumn textures and colours! The whole scene is like an impressionsitic painting in both photos! Stunning!

Gallow said...

Great reflections. The colors are spectacular.

Captain Shagrat said...

Great reflections. Love the colours.

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

o what beautiful colours

Michael said...

I like the submerged deadwood disappearing into the reflections of the trees.

maryt/theteach said...

James, I have my WR post up and a surprise for you... :)
Love your beautiful photos of reflections! :)

maryt/theteach said...

James my post is here

cieldequimper said...

You've outdone yourself! These are works of art.

Vogon Poet said...

Really beautiful, great place, excellent reflections.

Pam said...

The clarity of the reflections in the water is beautiful, James. They look just like a painting.
Fabulous reflection shots.

Hope 'Mr pain in you back' has gone to haunt some-body other than UR's

Owen said...

Hey James, this is terrific, I see you've been up to all sorts of mischief here... I've been TOO busy lately, and haven't been out and about as much as I'd like to see what everyone is up to... but looks like you are doing good things here... The creek reflection photos there make me think very strongly of Crum Creek where it flows through the Swarthmore College campus... have you ever been down in those woods ?

Your raptor photo here is lovely too...

VioletSky said...

Beautiful still waters.

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Excellent shots James and thanks for hosting this excellent meme, it sure has caught on quickly! I think you have a real winner :-)

Dimple said...

These are very lovely shots, very serene!

SandyCarlson said...

Gorgeous reflections, to be sure!

Barbara Martin said...

These are lovely photos of water and autumn trees.

I found a photo to post on reflections this week.

Becky and Gary said...

Absolutely breathtaking James!
Those colors are just beautiful, and the reflections so clear.
Excellant choice!
B.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Fabulous pictures, James! Wow!
Happy Weekend Reflections to everyone. My entry today is Petronas Twin Towers at KLCC.

chrome3d said...

It´s a bit difficult to think of that as a stream because it´so still and quietly reflective. Open to all kind of illusions.

Lew said...

Beautifully captured reflections!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Oh, that top photo just thrills me. What a fabulous color palette, perfect composition, and such a tender feeling. Wonderful.

Thom said...

Wonderful my friend. I'm sorry my link is up so late but being on the mainland...well I can't be on the computer a lot and I'm enjoying my family a great deal :) Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween. Fantastic Photos :) TBK

RuneE said...

I'm sorry to be so late with logging, but Blogger has been misbehaving with my ISP and I had to use a "back-up" solution. I'll make the rounds when things are back to normal. However - The post is up thanks to preposting.

Betty said...

I have a very similar pic up on my blog, but it´s not nearly as beautiful with the fall colors as yours! Love it!

B : ) said...

Oh, James, how absolutely magnificent. I want to be there, NOW! thanks so much for sharing. B : )

Gypsy Lala said...

It is very very pretty autumn color.

Mama Zen said...

These are absolutely magical!

Hilda said...

Perfectly beautiful!

Cindy said...

So pretty! I missed last week, but I'm back for this one. I see the meme is gaining new participants!

Bogey said...

There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said James. Except maybe a bow to acknowledge these fine masterpieces.

maryt/theteach said...

James, I'm glad you like the "Weekend Reflections" badge. If you would like me to make one for one of your own photos just tell me which one and I'll do it... I do really like participating in your meme! :) Happy Halloween! Boo!

maryt/theteach said...

Again, James, my WR post is at here
I keep forgetting to give the exact location of my post! Duh!

cieldequimper said...

I am glad too that you started this meme :-) (always makes me laugh: mémé is French for little old lady usually in a pejorative way!)
I'm kinda sorry that all don't follow the rules though.

Peter said...

This beautiful autumn is well worth of being reflected; we can see it twice! :-)

Bim said...

Gorgeous autumn light and colours!

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

this is stunningly beautiful.

sunnymama said...

Wonderful autumn reflections! I especially love the second picture. So beautiful. :)

gengen said...

It is very pretty and also the reflection...happy SOOC Sunday.

ruma2008 said...

This seems to be really a mirror.
It is beautiful scenery and color.

What a splendid autumn atmosphere!!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Very contemplative reflection, a vision of perfect peace.

Thanks for the visit James. I think I need to take a rest. I am truly tired.

Jacob said...

I really like the muted colors - pastels...like a painting. Very well done, James!

hip chick said...

Such beautiful photos. I love this time of year.

Bibi said...

Gorgeous, just gorgeous. I would like to walk through my screen and be there.

BTW, is your town pronounced like Newton in 'Fig Newton,' or is it like it looks = New Town?

mbkatc230 said...

Beautiful reflections James, I love that the color was captured so well in the reflection. My post this week involves trees on the water also, but we don't get the gorgeous autumn color that you do. And the raptor photo is astounding. Just beautifully captured. Have a nice weekend. Kathy

Jeanne said...

Beautiful reflection shots! Love them both and that sky one is really wonderful! I'll have to try and participate in this next weekend.

Sherrie said...

Hi!
Beautiful! The only thing missing is a boat with a man and a beautiful lady floating down the stream! LOL Looks really peaceful there! Have a great day!

Sherrie

Marisa @ Getting Back To Basics said...

I love the "mirror" reflection of the water and your shot of the raptor in your previous post. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment on my last weekends reflection post.

Tammie Lee said...

Hi James,
This is my first time here, Cielequimper send me. Your photos are lovely and overflowing with the colors of fall. Thanks for having me.

quilly said...

Wow! You did capture that bright and crisp! What a wonderful photograph.

Jan said...

James, these are fantastic shots. Thanks for the plug on SOOC. I'm having a connection prob., now; so I'm using my hubs PC.

Avril said...

Beautiful! I must join in next week!

katney said...

Those are incredible, James. I love forest reflections--and mountain reflections, and cloud reflections, and boat reflections, and .......

moorebloglife said...

This looks so calm and inviting, the fall colors make it just perfect for this time of year James.

ARIPI DE FLUTURE said...

beautiful

katney said...

Wow! I guess I did get in just in time. I usually have things ready much earlier, but this post has a lot to go into it. James, please e-mail me through my profile about the special gifts, and thank you for your support.

Ann said...

These are so beautiful. Do you have an advice on how to take such wonderful photos? Is it the water has to be shallow?
