Private Pond/ Weekend Reflections

House and pond south of East Gwillimbury

I was taking photos of wild yellow irises growing in a ditch beside a country road when I turned around and saw this reflection. It's a rather nice country home, don't you think?

Isn’t it fun to just “happen” onto a photographic opportunity? Beautiful photo, this is certainly a picturesque and peaceful looking country home.

What a gorgeous home! It puts this 110 year old farmhouse to shame. It is beautiful, and the reflection in front is a fine one showing off about everything. Great timing. Glad you turned around. Now, you can show us your yellow irises. Genie

Yes, this is definitely a country home I could settle into. A pond to give reflections is a bonus.

PS. I meant to add in response your comment on my post that getting around Romania without their language is a cinch compared to getting around China in the 80s. We are, in fact, very impressed by how many people here DO speak a very high level of English.

Beautiful photo, it almost has a story book look.

Don't you love it when you "accidentally" find a good photo opportunity.

There is a house just like this in Auckland near my uncle's house, but it is not near a river.

No, I am in Auckland. i call my sister , and pretend that I am in Brisbane. It is getting cooler here.

Dianne said...

I could settle in there happily
beautiful shot

Randy said...
