Clinton New Jersey (Weekend Reflections # 56)

The Red Mill at the other end of the water has a long and interesting history that began in 1810.

ATTENTION: The next four Weekend Reflections will be pre-scheduled because I'll be away on vacation. I'm not sure how often I'll have Internet access while I'm gone, but I'll try to post a few photos on my Something Sighted blog. The theme of my other blog is changing from mostly black and white photos to mostly photos of Europe. The new theme will be a mix of black and white and color and probably heavily weighted toward Paris.

"Weekend Reflections" rules are simple:
1)Post a photograph taken by you that contains a visual refection.
2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to LinkyTools
3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.
4)Link Weekend Reflections to your post so other will know where to go if they want to join
5)Comment on other Weekend Reflections participant’s blogs.
Feel free to be creative.Remember this meme is for any type of reflection photographs.This meme runs Friday 11 am EST through 11pm Sunday, so feel free to link your post anytime within that time frame. Join the fun!

In the reflection, the human part of the landscape seems to be disappearing..leaving behind the beauty of nature.

My reflection is a thought, a kind of meditation.

Helena said...

That's an amazing reflection! I love seeing the clouds reflected in the water.

Stickup Artist said...

I love New Jersey. My parents used to take us to the Jersey shore when we were kids and I always loved the ride over, leaving the city behind and seeing sights such as this. The arc of the shoreline is so dynamic leading back to the Red Mill. And the cloud reflections are amazing. Have a great vacation!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

What a lush photo and paean to water.

Jan said...

The pond looks like glass, just beautiful.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love that red building - interesting that it is a mill.
Have a great vacation James! Does this mean you are going to Paris?
Whatever the case may be I will look forward to your pictures.
& thank you for hosting this meme, it's always fun.

quilly said...

What an amazing photo! I love the way the water and sky creates a border around the mill and other buildings. The composition is wonderful!

awarewriter said...

Love this shot James. The colors are so very rich, the composition spot on.

Like that barn drive by too. Old barns are neat.

Livsnjutaren said...

On my mindfulness course, we made this beautiful painting together. Now when I get my photography course at the same place I took a picture of the painting with the subject and the whole hall, which was reflected in the glass.

Antonette said...

What a fabulous shot!

Mine's up, so stop by if you have time!
