The rain and the movement in the water adds another layer of wonderment to this reflection, James. Since joining this meme, I am starting to notice reflections everywhere. Funny how that works!

I like the angle of the house and the tree in the first photo.

My husband and I just got back from riding bikes along the Delaware Canal out there!

Neat idea for the reflections.

Greyscale Territory said...

Magical reflections! The second one especially looks like a wonderful dreamscape!

Carly said...

Your pictures are great! I typed my name wrong, but hit submit before I noticed! It is Photography, not photogaphy!

Barbara Martin said...

Excellent reflection for a magical moment. It looks like you could step into the water to get there.

Jan said...

James, great and eery reflection. I'm not posting, today, took a week off to recover.

Becky and Gary said...

A simply awesome reflection James! I had to look twice to realize it WAS a reflection! I thought the leaves were falling from the rees. Excellant choice.

Ai Shiang said...

Wow, and double wow! How awesome are these pics. They look almost perfect like they're on land. You are good at taking reflective images, I notice :o) I should learn a bit.

Bogey said...

Whatever you did, especially the second one, makes these pictures look very eerie. Nice touch!

Marisa @ Getting Back To Basics said...

Beautiful shot...it looks like a painting.

quilly said...

These are incredibly perfect. If I didn't know they were water reflections I would have thought them to be oil paintings.

ruma2008 said...

I was not able to understand it with the reflection till I watched the leaf which floated on the surface of the water.

It is very wonderful.

Lily Hydrangea said...

it's no wonder why you came up with this great meme James, you have a real talent for capturing beautiful reflections.
Thanks for hosting this fun meme.

This one made me dizzy in a good way.

That is so good and fun and even more interesting since it started to rain, MB

Great reflections in the rain! For an unusual, far away reflection check out this reflection nebula on this NASA site.

Thom said...

That is just beautiful my friend :) Excellent :)

Life with Kaishon said...

What beautiful pictures James. Wow. I love your creativity and outside the box thinking!

Hilda said...

These are great! I actually got a little disoriented for a moment — "Why is James posting a dark, blurry photo?" ;) Not like you at all! Love that you kept a little of the grassy bank in the photos.

Melli said...

Beautiful! The bottom one looks like a painting! But I like the top one more... I'm an out of kilter sort of person! :)

Today is my first time playing!

Martha said...

That is a delightful photo, perfect for this time of year. Thank you!

Bibi said...

Super shots. I forgot for a moment in was reflection time, and thought the leaves on the top photo were blowing in the air.

Reader Wil said...

That's exactly the kind of reflection I am looking for, James! Mine is a lot less spectacular! But I wanted to join the fun!!
Have a great weekend!

Chin said...

So beautiful .

Dimple said...

These are good captures; they echo the season with the leaves, gray tones, and rain, and also give a clear picture of the building, even if it is upside down!
Thanks for the visit and kind comment!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

The leaves and ripples make this picture, at least I think so.

VioletSky said...

I somehow missed commenting on this - I think I was too awestruck.

It looks as if you had come up with a new special raindrop effect!

Cindy said...

I especially like the second one! It does indeed look like a painting.

Asta said...

The second picture is like a Monet painting. It's very beautiful!

I saw your comment on my AM3 site and you mentioned that we posted similar shots of the same place on the same date. Quite a co-incidence. I decided to go back into the original and see which day I shot it and what time. I took mine on Nov. 1, 2009 a little before 3PM. It would be really funny if it was the same day. I remember it was an overcast kind of blustery day but I do not remember it raining.

Here is the link to that photo in larger format on my main page:
