Ephemeral Scenery (Weekend Reflections # 167)

Florence, Italy

One second there might be a beautiful reflection and the next it could be distorted, but still beautiful or possibly even gone. I like figuring out the right time and elements to make a good reflection photo. It's fun because reflections constantly change.

Have a great weekend everyone!


Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.
If needed, click the link near the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

This is so very cool James! I think I would have liked it without the guys paddling by but they give it a whole new dimension.
Well caught!

Sylvia K said...

I do love your watery reflections, James!! It's wonderful the way they seem to move and change along with the movement of the water! Thanks as always for the weekend fun and I hope your weekend is as beautiful as your captures for the day!!

I think you're right. Time and reflections wait for no man.

This is a really wonderful shot.

Awesome! Love the clarity of the rowers amidst the wavy reflection of the buildings.

Norma Ruttan said...

The reflection gives the sense of the rowers gliding across the buildings. great image!

I like the moment you choosed to take the picture: Avant aurait été trop tôt, après trop tard! là , on voit le reflet net d'un côté, et le reflet bougé de l'autre; Perfect timing!

Malyss said...

PS: no , YOU read minds! :o)

This is gorgeous, James. We're scheduled for Italy soon, but haven't decided our itinerary beyond Venice, where we disembark from a cruise. Florence is definitely on our list, and now, if it has reflections...we'll have to re-reflect on how much time we'll need there!
Fabulous photo!

Hi James, for once am getting here on a Friday, as am off from work for a change. You really nailed this one, and sure looks like you had a gorgeous day for it in Florence. I need to get back into my Florence photos from last June, still have a ton of editing and sorting to do, from the lovely cemeteries there, especially... best wishes...

Rowing through the reflection like that seems to have taken them into another - almost a science fiction - dimension. This is one of the 'specials'.

Jim said...

That's a brilliant reflection.
