Family Fun on the Other Side (Weekend Reflections # 35)

Last weekend I was walking along a creek and I noticed a family standing in front of the water on the other side. This is their reflection. From left to right ( 1. a little boy looking at something in his hands, 2.) a women in shorts bent over holding a red leash, 3) a man in white walking toward the scene with a drink in his hand, 4) the black dog on the red leash, 5) a little girl poking a stick in the water, she's about to be licked by the dog.) You can also see the reflection of the trees and the dirt.
I rotated this picture because I liked it this way better.

  14. HI,
    fantastica questa foto.... sembra che invece dell'acqua ci sia uno specchio molto vecchio, che distorca un poco l'immagine.
    Effetto molto reale.
    Buona serata.
