Colourful Laundry/Weekend Reflections

Reflection in swollen creek

The creeks are high but not overflowing, at least when I took this photo, and there was no threat of rain.

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James' WEEKEND REFLECTIONS at Newtown Area Photo.

Our creeks and streams are flowing pretty good here. I love the clothes hanging on the line. I need to get some lines up this year.

The colors really attract the eyes in the middle of that grey landscape. !

That's going to smell lovely! Love the muted tones all around the flying laundry!

Wonderful image. :)

Rose said...

I really like this shot...like the barn and like that creek. And clothes on the line is always a favorite with me.

I notice her clothesline post is leaning, too! Mine definitely need to be redone...am afraid I will go out there some windy day and find my sheets on the ground.

Looks like if they got a good wind, the clothes would get an extra rinse cycle! :)

This brings back memories of when I was much younger.Mom took great pride in hanging the laundry in a neat way.Thanks for the memories.

Joyful said...

It's nice to see laundry on a line. Where I live you don't see that.

George said...

This is a wonderful picture. You were in a perfect position to capture the reflection of the laundry in the creek.

Becky and Gary said...

What a wonderful picture and wonderful place!! Oh, I would like to stay there for a while, some days, some weeks.. Fascinating to see the colors of the clothes, such a good contrast of the surroundings! :)

In a rather monochrome winter world the laundry does brighten things up.

Francisca said...

Hmmm... while drying laundry in plain view is a very familiar sight to me in Asia, I don't often see it in "developed" countries. This riverside laundry makes for a nice reflection shot.

Mark said...

Great shot, are the creeks swollen due to melting snow?

BJ Roan said...

Cool shot!

Dianne said...

I love the laundry colors reflected
and the old weathered barn is wonderful

Genie said...

You could have picked up this image and put it right here in Rockbridge County. It all looks so familiar. Many of our rural people still hang out their clothes to dry. We only do it in the summer. The refection of the colors of the material in the water is superb. and makes for a fabulous shot.

What a great capture! I love the colorful clothes and colorful reflections -- you'd think they knew you were coming with your camera!! Marvelous post for the day, as always! Enjoy your weekend!!

Randy said...

I agree with Kathy. Excellent photo.

Pearl Maple said...

great reflecting photo, the shot of colour makes for an interesting view

Dimple said...

Wow! I am looking forward to being able to air my laundry! Not for a while yet, though!

Great catch!

jeannette said...

Love that pic, because one hardly sees it anymore in my area. So different in other countries, where this is a common sight:) A great capture!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Your photo has a monochrome effect with the punch of color in the clothes hanging out to dry... Very nice slice of rural life. I hope that the water comes no higher!

Bises,
Genie

Serendipity said...

Now this is a special shot. The colours on the clothes line make it. Wow!!
