River/ Weekend Reflection

Dull day but bright reflection

Last Sunday my husband and I were on our way to visit relatives in Upstate New York when we decided to take a short break...and LOOK what we found. Doesn't the reflection look like someone has scratched away some of the colour?

This river empties into Lake Ontario.

see you there! said...

Interesting play of the vertical lines in the top part (deck rail, etc) and the horizontal lines in the lower reflection. Squint and it is very abstract.

EG, you really got a good one today. The stretched horizontal lines in the water make this picture.

Andy said...

You mean your hubby took the break and the photography bug made you go searching for this great capture. Nice work!

Judy said...

A fine shot with exceptionally nice reflections of a very unusual nature. What an eye-catching shot. Very well done.

I wish our rivers were that calm right now. They are usually beautiful, but are in flood stage at the moment.

A ripple glass reflection rather than a looking glass, nice.

Great capture and the "scratchy" reflection just makes the shot!

Crafty Green Poet said...

wonderful scratchy reflection!

Francisca said...

The scratch picture! I remember doing that as a kid! First color the paper, then cover with black waxy stuff, then scratch in my "picture"! Don't think I ever got very good at it. But Mama Nature sure did here.

Janie said...

The reflection in the ripples makes an interesting pattern.

Jacob said...

I dunno but this photo will be etched into my consciousness for some time...how beautifully bucolic...What a great place to sit and fish or just sit!

Fjällripan said...

What a great place you found. Beautiful reflections!
Have a nice weekend :)

Have you lost your friends, too, I wonder? Lovely looking find with everything one could wish for. Yes, the water as you captured it is striking and it may be some time before you, or whoever lives there, sees that again!

Fantastic! I like what you suggested about scratching the color away. It does look like that.
I also love the scene. It's idyllic, the sort of place I'd love to live, with decks and docks and boats.

I like your very colorful and beautiful reflection.

George said...

The ripples in the water do make it look as if some of the color has been scratched out. This is a very interesting and beautiful reflection. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Dianne said...

This is a lovely shot - both the scratches of the reflection, and the wonderful scenery overall. I'd like to sit down there, too.
