Algonquin/Reflections

 Algonquin Provincial Park - almost as smooth as glass

On a lovely spring day, my husband and I visited Algonquin Provincial Park several weeks ago. And among the treats that we saw were myriad reflections. Here's just a taste of the beauty.

 Like out of a cartoon
Imagine these dead trees and branches reaching like hands to grab you your evil twin.
Magical colours

The blue here reflects the sky above.

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE

OK -- I'll be sure not to fall in that water (I might BE the evil twin!)...really the water is magical and beautiful -- looks like a wonderful Park.

Clytie said...

I agree with TexWisGirl - so very peaceful! I might even let myself, er, my evil twin - get grabbed by one of those trees!

Antonette said...

Very calming as well as pretty scenes. Would love to see it in person.

LONDONLULU said...

This is so, so beautiful. I totally agree with cieldequimper! (And LOL re: evil twin bit, I too-often imagine branches reaching out when I'm down in the woods :).

Genie said...

Love your imagination. I do not want to get grabbed by anything...especially not by those dead trees and branches. Still, it is a great shot. The second one is so pretty. The reflection of the blue sky in the water is gorgeous. genie
