He can really say "Gone Fishin'" :-)

Leora said...

Lovely scene...I bet he's been waiting all winter to enjoy the fishing like that.

I entered the title of the post instead of my name, because it said "title" - oops.

Sunny said...

Great reflections! It looks pretty shallow where he is standing. I wonder if he caught anything.

The covered bridge makes me think of the movie with Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep, in Madison county..The reflection is there enough to be seen, and light enough to seem to vanish in the little waves...So peaceful!

I've seen fishermen standing in the middle of rivers before but this one looks a bit bewilderded to me.

Beautiful photograph.

Dianne said...

the water is beautiful
gentle ripples add to all the wonderful reflections

maiaT said...

What an amazing reflection and lovely colors. I like the calm water surface around the right bridge pillar and the warm colors of the reflection.
Perfect mirror image of the fisherman.

EG Wow said...

I like this very much, James!

Stickup Artist said...

Oh that's a good one. I love the way the bridge and its reflection frames the fisherman's own peaceful world out there.

imac said...

Nice shot, the fisherman just adds that little extra.

Regina said...

Wow love the reflections!
Amazing one James.
Happy weekend.

Dina said...

Your contrast between light and dark and between fisherman in a light mood with a heavy bridge over him is great.

cieldequimper said...

Now I want to go fishing. Duh, how'm I going to do that, huh? Love all the reflections here!

Lew said...

Great shot! I like the covered bridges and sometime will search for some of them in Central PA.

Thom said...

I like the gentle ripple effect on this one. The reflections are just awesome. Have a great weekend my friend :)

I don't even like fishing, but this is such a peaceful scene it makes me want to go do it!

Ebie said...

I hope he has a good catch!

Johnny Nutcase said...

Hi. I thought I would join in. I am really into reflections right now. Your picture is gorgeous.

Thom said...

James, via SisterTex's blog I'm so sorry to hear that Bucky passed away. I didn't know where else to say this. I want you to know I left a comment on Vicki's blog and just wanted to let you know as well that my thoughts and aloha go out to you my friend. :) You and Vicki are such wonderful people :) May Bucky rest in peace :)

Julie said...

The proportions here are terrific, James. Blocky, chunky and imposing. The lone figure makes it all very idyllic. Quite wonderful ...

Greyscale Territory said...

Huge, beautiful reflections that completely fill the photo! And love how the fishing guy is standing surrounded by this wonderworld.

awarewriter said...

Great shot James. That guy fishing makes it perfect.

Lindy MacDuff said...

A beautiful image and reflection. I'll bet that fellow is truly enjoying himself.

VioletSky said...

it all looks so romantic...

Eden said...

What a lovely shot and the reflections are fantastic. Have a great weekend.

Matty said...

I like the symmetry of that reflection in the water. Nice angle James.

judi said...

Wonderful composition!

Hilda said...

Alone with your thoughts in the middle of peaceful surroundings… I can get to like this sport.

Lovely textures all over: the wooden planks, the stone base, the jumble of trees, the rippling water, the soil. Wonderful!

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

How sturdy the structure and how vulnerable the lone fisherman looks. A beautiful study of reflections
captured in one shot.

Dimple said...

Very nicely framed by the bridge and its reflection!

Woody said...

I think this is one of the few covered bridges I have not yet visited. This is very nice!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love the contrast of the large bridge structure against the smallness of the fisherman - very striking! & of course, lovely reflection shot.
have a great weekend James & thanks for hosting!

Kcalpesh said...

An exact distorted mirror effect :-) I'm sure the guy's having fun with fishing :-)

Hi James,

McLinky list is not working. I have one too on my Macro Flowers bog and I was notified in a comment that it does not work.
I came here to see if your list works but this is out too. The dashboard is not accessible either.
I'm quite new in Mclinky and I thought you know how to fix this.
Please let me know if you find out something.
Thanks.

Great photo James

maiaT said...

Sorry to bother you again James, the list works now, it was fixed (for now).

hip chick said...

Wow! That is a fantastic picture. I love it. And, to top it off it looks like it was a perfect day for fishing as well. I hope he caught something.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful reflection! I hope he had some luck with the fishing.

Louis la Vache said...

What a peaceful image, James!

Kaori said...

Looks like a great day for fishing! Wonderful reflection :)

Clytie said...

I really like this picture - the orange accent of the fisherman's vest ... the way the covered bridge is completely shown in reflection. It sets a very idyllic mood.

VP said...

One of your best images, I really love this.

Mama Zen said...

A gorgeous, natural frame!

tapirgal said...

That's beautifully shimmery with wonderfully clear colors.

Tash said...

The man is so small and with such a colorful reflection...Shows how big even a seemingly small covered bridge is. I like the angles cast by the bridge reflected on the water too.

Ann said...

wonder if he got any fish? Great reflection.

Hello everybody! happy to meet you, my regards from a Greek in Germany

Nice tie-in of your World-Famous Weekend Reflections meme with «Louis'» budding Sunday Bridge meme. «Louis» has your link posted now.

Covered bridges are so beautiful.

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful shot---frame-able. The reflection is super. It's a beauty. MB

tapirgal said...

Thanks for your comment validating the street light in my NYC photo. I liked it, too, then I started wondering if it really "should" be there. It's good to have a second opinion :)

Owen said...

I didn't manage to get a reflection in this time, but your covered bridge is gorgeous...

ruma2008 said...

It is a man standing in a mirror.

Your photography is always wonderful!!
