Sun and Trees in a Puddle (Weekend Reflections # 28)

The most amazing things can be found in puddles. Step off of the curb and into another world.


-Malyss commented about the reflection being in black and white. I think It only appears that way because it was a hazy day and the sun was burning through the clouds. (so the grey sky is being reflected along with the silhouettes of the branches)

Happy Easter!

Puddles are so great! I can't step over one anymore without taking a good look. I even noticed a gorgeous reflection while taking my dog for a walk past a house with the sprinklers on...beautiful wet sidewalk...but, I didn't have my camera. I'll not do that again! Your reflection is a jewel!

MOO said...

I've always loved puddles...and mirrors, too!

Pardon My French!

Rajesh said...

Very nice capture of fantastic reflections

Spiderdama said...

Very nice reflection, I like it:-)

Malyss said...

I don't know how you did that, but the fact that the reflection is in black and white, and the frame in color, really gives the feeling of a stolen view into an other world! I like that!

Icy BC said...

Wow...that's really vivid reflections, James!

Sistertex said...

Hummmm....nice puddle. ;) LOL
Mine's up.

And through the wardrobe. Lovely image. Happy Easter!

Clytie said...

I find, thanks to YOU that I love puddle reflections even more than I used to!!! This one is spell-binding.

Dina said...

Nice, the extra elements and surprises that a puddle adds to a reflection.

May you have a moving Good Friday and Holy Saturday and then a joyous Easter.

Mama Zen said...

Lovely!

Happy Easter!

Dianne said...

exceptional!
it is a whole new world, right there at our feet

T. Becque said...

What a great reflection in an interesting spot you've captured!

I'm new to the McLinky stuff, so I'm afraid I made a mistake, would you please delete number 15, I linked to the wrong place. The correct link is on number 18. So sorry for the confusion!

Woody said...

Very cool reflection!! It really is another world.

Melissa B. said...

Happy Easter to you, too! Love this capture...

Sistertex said...

Thanks for visiting James, and for the nice comment. I thought it funny that we both had done photos of puddles! However, I guess there are a lot of those around this time of year. Yours wonderful the way the sun shows through the branches. It actually looks like it could be either the sun or the moon. Have a great Easter weekend!

RuneE said...

I don't mind reflections in black and white - indeed, I almost posted one. I enjoyed this one.

Maria said...

Quite fascinating, great reflection captured there in the puddle.

Thom said...

Very nice reflection my friend. I really like it. You and Vicki have a Happy Easter :) Aloha, TBK

Dagrun said...

Thank you, James! For once I'm not posting a droplet reflection;)

I love this shot. The "monochromness" just underlines the texture.

Riet said...

That is a great reflection picture James.
Happy Easter

Piyush said...

Amazing reflections James. Brilliant !

Stickup Artist said...

Oh, I love this one. The subtle color and tonal range really make it for me. Good Eye!

Rebecca said...

It does look like you will drop right into another world.

Beth Niquette said...

This is lovely! And so funny--great minds do think alike--I just took a wonderful reflection of trees out in the fishpond, then another from a sudden puddle. We're having thunderstorms, wind, hail, sunshine and just anything you can think weatherwise just now. Makes for some fascinating photography!

Gattina said...

Nice result and a very good idea. Anyway we have lots of puddles here, so next time I'll think about it too, lol !
Happy Easter !

maiaT said...

I totally agree with you, I love puddle shots too.
This is another lovely nature scene in the puddle.
Sometimes, if the water in the puddle is dirty, the colors are not so sharp either.

awarewriter said...

Step off the curb but don't get wet James. Trees make some of the neatest reflections. This is a nice shot. Like the detail in the branches. Are we having fun or what!

sunnymama said...

Wonderful puddle with a fascinating reflection!

noexcuses said...

Absolutely beautiful puddle! I always enjoy your photos, and visiting all of your friends!

Once again, Mr. Linkly and I are at odds with each other. Sorry!

Hilda said...

Before I read your commentary, my first thought was precisely that — you find the most amazing scenery in puddles! I first need to get over my feeling that puddles are ick.

This is such a dreamy photo, and I love your "Step off the curb and into another world." Perfect.

Happy Easter, James!

ρομπερτ said...

What a wonderful mean to measure time and space.

It would be amazing to see the trees in a few months, wearing green. Please have a nice start into the weekend and a wonderful Easter celebration as well.

happilyretired said...

Yup ... puddle reflections are some of my favorites! Lovely capture.
Hugs and blessings,

Becky and Gary said...

That shot is really cool James. I took a shot just like this on our property yesterday, but it wasn't in the water.

It is so beautiful.

Happy Easter!

The reflection is so clear! Very nice capture. Happy Easter James.

Regina said...

How awesome!

A blessed Easter to you and to your family.

I love puddle art - this one is great!

Pam said...

James, your splendid reflection photo shows that puddles are good for more than just stomping ones feet in.

Blessings to you and Vicki this Easter holiday.

chasity said...

what a great photo...

Lily Hydrangea said...

that is what is so cool about this meme, you start to look at things so differently as you hunt for reflections!
Nice shot James.
Happy Easter to you too.

Jan said...

A great puddle reflection, on an overcast day. Love puddles and their reflections.

Louis la Vache said...

Indeed, another world!
Another beautiful entry in your Weekend Reflections meme!

Easter blessings to you and your family, James.

VP said...

I tend to ignore puddles if not to avoid them. My mistake.

tapirgal said...

Looking is delightful - maybe better than stepping on this cold, wet day. Very nice photo.

raf said...

You've done it again, James, pulled out another great reflected image from an oft overlooked source. Well done!

Gena D said...

So true - if you take the time look, reflections in puddles are truly different and often fascinating too!!!

Lovely one!
thanks for the opportunity to share!

ps. happy easter

mbkatc230 said...

This is a really nice shot James. I love the way the water looks almost like mercury where it is spreading onto the concrete walk. And the reflection is incredibly clear. Great catch! Hope you have a wonderful Easter. Kathy

Matty said...

It's amazing how real the image looks. Nice shot James.

JM said...

Another great reflection, James! Happy Easter!

Pearl Maple said...

Fun image for the reflection theme, very artsy.

Lew said...

A true reflection of the day! B&W images are sometimes more appealing than color.

Cheryl said...

Fantastic!
