Sunset Over Puddles/ Sky Watch

Peach reflections in farm puddles

The sunset was rather blah and undramatic...until I noticed the reflections in the farmer's puddly field. I had just enough time to snatch my camera and shoot before the sun disappeared below some drab clouds. Another near miss!

Great reflections. Good reflexes about camera grabbing. LOL.
I feel naked without my camera in my hand. I think it is glued on.

As I always say: The foreground makes the picture - as you have shown here.

Reflections the quality can enhance enormously.

You've done it again. Like Valkyrien said. The right time and place. But then you always are. I love this picture and the fact that your snow has melted away.

What luck to find those puddles and multiply the prettiness of the sky by 2. Happy SWF!

Carole said...

I love that you found beauty in what others would see as muddy puddles. What a great photo!

Craver Vii said...

Peach reflections. That sounds so nice, and I can just imagine the pleasant aroma to go with it. My first thought when I saw the reddish water was something like a scary novel. Brrrr!

Jeri said...

Photographing over water is the ebst way to add extra light an shimmer and as you've proved puddles are a photographer's friend.

judi said...

I love reflections and you have been doing some fine ones. That and your spectacular shadows. :)

Diane C. said...

This is such a fascinating photo because of the sky reflection being more intense than the actual sky. I love it!

How wonderful to pay attention to what we don't see! Great image!

ROSIDAH said...

I love sunset and the peach reflectionsmakes it even more unique. Best wishes :)

Antjas said...

Every time I see you pictures I feel like I'm waking up on my childhood farm near Peterborough. It's as though we live in a parallel world. Sometimes I thought that world was barren, boring, and an ugly brown, but when you look at it through someone else's eyes as evidenced by all your comments you see the beauty in it all over again.

T and S said...

Beautiful shot, the reflection is awesome with a range of colors getting reflected.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Beautiful.... I'm so glad you got the reflection... I also thought you Tic-Tac-Toe shot... :O)

Randi said...

Beautiful image to me, I think the sky would attract me as well. Happy swf!

Hilda said...

Oh hey, you're right — the colors in the puddles are much richer. Now I want to know why that is!

Inkivääri said...

What a sweet pink sky - I miss brightness...

Margaret's Ramblings said...

Those moments can be so fleeting, great you were able to capture the photo, I like it,

Judy said...

Gorgeous photo!! I love the way the clouds and the horizon and the fencerow are roughly parallel, and the furrows go another direction, and the trees yet another.

Janie said...

Amazingly beautiful. I love the reflections.
