I think you are a wonderful photographer!
Black and white pictures make for the best reflections, this one is fantastic.
My biggest goal for 2011 is to see 2012 :)
A very Happy New Year to you and Vicki, Lucy and Simba!

No reflection from me this time, but a wish for A Happy New Year :-)

Pagan Sphinx said...

It's amazing now nature's beauty can be so well captured in black and white at times. Great photo, James!

Happy New Year and thanks for the great meme. I'm enjoying participating and meeting new people, all of whom have been friendly and talented!

Peace,
Gina

Karen said...

I like monochrome reflections. This is a terrific photo. My goal for 2011 is to take more time to play.

Have a Happy New Year James.

By the looks of this photo you are well on your way to your goal! Happy New Year James!

Malyss said...

A fabulous picture to end the year! being a better photographer will be hard, it will mean to reach a veeeerrrryyyyy high level!Ü
My wish for 2011 is to make the world a little prettier, by all means!
I wish you a Happy New Year!

Jan said...

Very serene, but cold looking. Perhaps I'm just reacting to our cold weather this AM, it's about 25, cold for Murrieta.

Sylvia K said...

You are indeed a great photographer, James! I love your photos so I, too, think you must be well on your way to achieving your goal! Terrific capture for the day -- it does look cold!! Wishing you a very Happy New Year and thank you for the fun of reflections!!

My wishes are the same as Sunny's!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your pictures are wonderful! I'd love to be as good a photographer.

(Maybe that's my photo goal for the year ;>)

Happy New Year; thank you for hosting this meme. I love it!

Le Journal de Chrys said...

Très belle soirée à toi!!!!! Et BONNE ANNÉE!

Maia said...

That can't be a goal, you are a good photographer already.
I don't bother with setting goals any more because I forget about them next day.

I wish you and your loved ones a prosperous and peaceful new year,

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!

Melissa B. said...

Every year I resolve to be a better person. The photography thing? To get as good as you, I'll have to have two key ingredients: a better camera, and more patience!

Greyscale Territory said...

The monochrome highlights the artistic shapes of the leafless trees in reflection! A great photo!

Happy New Year!

Stickup Artist said...

That is a beautiful scene, one I wish I could step right into and spend some time. I love that front tree reflecting dark on the brightly lit water. Great sense of depth. My goals for 2011 are: grow at photography, maybe take a risk now and then, and to be more patient. That last one will be the hardest!

Have a Happy New Year! I look forward to what next year brings us at the opposite ends of this country. It's been a great year of many fond memories and beautiful images on your blog.

Mama Zen said...

That's a stunner!

EG Wow said...

Looks like your weather is very similar to mine - overcast! :)

Becky Chalet said...

You are already there James, perfect picture. I know I'd be learning more from everyone in this group this year 2011. Happy New Year!

Shirley said...

Great photo! The black and white truly captures the spirit of it; the crispness of the air, the cool clear water, and the bare lean branches reaching skyward.

Happy New Year James!

Leovi said...

A beauty to dismiss the year. Happy 2011 and happy decade 2011-2020. My best wishes. Leovi.

Doreen said...

we have similar goals for 2011.

Happy New Year!!

Carolyn Ford said...

I keep buying books and admiring photography sites hoping to pick up any tips I can...your scene is splendid. And, so nice in b&w too. The people were in just the right places for you to compose a beautiful image.

I wish you and yours a wonderful New Year. Stay safe in all of that dramatic weather on the east coast...wow, that's something!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

James, thanks for all the amazing photos this year and I look forward to seeing what your "improved" photos could possibly be (hah!)

Goal for 2011? To appreciate all that I have and to live life well, to reach out to others, and to grow.

Best wishes for your 2011, James!
Genie

jeannette said...

Happy New Year to you, James!
I've many goals for 2011 -one of them is to paint more:) thanks for providing Weekend Reflections each week!

Hooked on Memes said...

My goal is to take more photographs and to use more of the features on my camera. Happy New Year! Thanks for hosting Weekend Reflections.

Wind said...

A Happy, Healthy New Year, my friend!
Best regards!

ρομπερτ said...

'reaching out' was what first came into me mind.


Please have you all a wonderful, happiness filled new year.

This looks like a painting. Beautiful!

Louis la Vache said...

Appropriate photo for the end of the year James, as our country needs once again to cross the Delaware to take it from tyranny, Chicago Gangster style.


Best wishes to you this New Year

lotusleaf said...

Thank you for your wonderful meme. It gave me endless fun last year. Happy New Year!

Becky and Gary said...

Perfect James, and I love it in B&W.
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Pat said...

I love the bare tree branches, and how the one tree frames the photo. Great reflection and the b/w really sets this photo off.

Nature Rambles said...

Love this reflection...it's incredibly beautiful!

Happy New Year!!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

You seem to be a master to me.

Happy New Year.

Boonie S said...

Love your photos. This reflection shot caper looks interesting, and challenging. I'm very tempted to join in.

Happy New Year to you, form Boonie

Francisca said...

Lovely photo and a laudable goal for 2011. While to some extent I share yours (not to be judged by my so-so submission today! LOL), my larger goal is to get a new business off the ground; so let's see how much more time and energy I have for this wonderfully satisfying hobby! All the best in the New Year, James.

Did Washington have time to notice the scenary, I wonder! The clarity is great. My goal is to always try to publish a photo that is better than the last one - the memes are wonderful starting points. Thank you for an interesting 2010 year and now on to the next!

Dina said...

Is that a person fishing in your cold river?
You have a worthy goal, James, and we will all profit from your advancement in photography.
A happy new year to you and all, full of good photos.
My basic goal for the year, here in the Middle East, is staying alive and praying there will be no war.

Cheryl Ann said...

I LOVE your photographs! My goal for 2011 is to THINK more about the photos I'm taking...better framing and to really focus on one thing in the viewfinder! I tend to "point and click" and I need to really think about what I want to shoot.

Anne-Ma said...

J'aime beaucoup votre photo.

Bonne et heureuse année 2011, James.

raf said...

Wonderful composition in black and white, James. Captures the chill of the season so well.

gospelwriter said...

what a beautiful clear reflection of winter trees!

Elisa said...

Have a great 2011 James.
I´ll leave my fireworks reflections
Greetings

Lynette Killam said...

This is a stunning photo, James...winter trees have a beauty all their own. And my fervent wish for the new year mirrors yours...to take my photography to a new level. Have a wonderful New Year!

Lynette

Franius said...

Very nice BW photo.

Happy New year!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Magnificent photo. Another "framer." Hope your 2011 is filled with creativity, growth, and artistic satisfaction, as well as the health, wealth and happiness that we wish to our non-artist friends. Thanks for hosting a truly wonderful and ispiring meme.

Cildemer said...

Superb shot as always!
HAPPY NEW YEAR JAMES!

And may your star

Beautiful B& W photo.

Happy New Year, James!

Margaret Bednar said...

Sorry. I double dipped here, by accident. Same photo. Delete the one that says Margaret Bednar. Thank you!

Kristy said...

Gorgeous shot!

Fabien said...

Superbe photo, meilleurs vœux pour cette nouvelle année.

Cezar and Léia said...

I don't recall having seen a reflection in B&W before, this is really a great image! Thanks for sharing! And by the way, all the best in 2011!
P.S.: the "snow" pictures of the previous post are also great!
God bless you!
Cezar

ruma said...

A very happy new year, James.

The harmony of the black and white.
Angler seems to be a chief character of the stories. . .

All is serenity.
I feel the invisible rocking.

I hope you have a new year filled with good health and prosperity and joy.

Thank you, from Japan.
Your friend.

Rebecca said...

That is one very nice photo! And really, how much better can you get!! I think your work this past year had been VERY good. I would like to master some of the skills you have.
