Blooming Trees (Weekend Reflections # 94)

Newport Beach, California

This glass building has an interesting golden color that made these tree reflections really stand out. I'm going back when I have more time to take pictures.

And the colored glass changes the color of the tree's blossoms! Very interesting, very beautiful.

Like Dina, I couldn't help noticing how the colored glass affects the color of the reflected blooms. Lovely!

Ooh I would like that. I can see the way the purple warms in the reflection vs. the live tree blossoms. Looks like a fun place to spend time. It's like golden hour without having to wait for it.

EG Wow said...

Great way to double the pleasure of the lilacs, James. :)

Japy said...

Absolutely beautiful reflection. Greetings.

Love the warm colors James. Your photo gives reflective glass a whole new meaning (a good one!).

Malyss said...

Yeah!I did it!! Clicking nervously on many points and finally succeeded..Not sure to be able to do it again! :o)

The reflection is so pure! And is it me, or the flowers have a different color in real and in reflection?..Somebody is taking a good care of those windows..

Have a nice week-end!

Beautiful, James, crepe myrtle is one of my favorite trees. It loves the heat and we have plenty of that in California in the summer.

Wonderful James!

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice! It's so clear that it's hard to tell it's a reflection.

cieldequimper said...

Oh the colours! Have a great weekend!

Alexa said...

Given the two different colors of the blooms and the clarity of the mirror image, you could almost convince me that it's not a reflection. But I know better, of course. :~} This is brilliant, James!

jennyfreckles said...

Really pretty - I like how it changes purple to pink.

Dimple said...

I love how the reflected flowers are a different color from the real ones. Gorgeous!

Ms. Becky said...

This is pretty!
You're next trip sounds great! Switzerland would be awesome to see. Sadly, I'm already planning my next trip too, I say sadly because I'm no where near ready to take it, economically speaking.
