Leafless Limbs/Weekend Reflections

Nonquon Provincial Wildlife Area, Port Perry

Actually I was at the wildlife area to check out birds, but I discovered it was far to wet to walk there since I was not wearing boots. The water in the creek and swamp was high, and the the light waning. And then I spotted this incredible reflection. Although my feet got very wet, I was happy to find a subject I wanted to photograph..

It's an amazing shot with an almost sculptural quality.

Stay warm and dry today!

Awesome reflection, indeed, with a description of the bare branches that is appropriately poetic. From my perspective well worth your wet feet. :)

That's a nice, glassy reflection of the sky in that water, and I like how the trees set it off.

It is wet here (near Chicago), too. My feet were soaked as we helped some friends protect their homes from flooding. The cool water was fun for a little while, but it didn't take very long for the cold to bite. I'm glad to be dry and warm again.
