Liquid Gold

Sun setting in puddle

During our recent "January Thaw" (said tongue in cheek as we still have a lot of ice and snow), I spotted this puddle on the edge of a farmer's field. No rainbows and no pots, but there was definitely gold there.

Liquid gold in a ditch

On some winter days when the sun is nearly obscured by clouds and haze, gold appears magically in a farmer's ditch.

LONDONLULU said...

No need for rainbows or pots, your liquid gold is good enough! Beautiful reflections and those telephone poles going on for miles...something about the 2nd shot really makes me think of Canada:)

Lowell said...

These are both superb, but the first one would be a winner in a photo contest! Love them!

Beautiful shots that evoke a sense of quiet.

Rose said...

Beautiful...your words brought to mind the Marshall Tucker Band song Fire on the Mountain..."there's gold in them hills/fields and its waiting for me there" Hills/fields....either one sounds good.

see you there! said...

Finding gold, what great shots.

All this snow ! That is a white gold on your pic... But the reflection of the sunset on those puddle is so precious too.

Shammickite said...

I bet you wish you had a big bucket at hand to scoop up some of that "gold"!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

You captured such a mystical hue in these photos. I could never resist a puddle, especially when it is golden.

RedPat said...

These are beautiful, EG! It looks like you could skate for miles along that ditch!

cieldequimper said...

Dare I say it again? I'm jealous... Yeah, I know, I sound like a broken old record...

Carver said...

I love these liquid gold shots.

Valerie said...

Fabulous captures, EG - Your images confirm how much I am looking forward to my month on Vancouver Island in about 10 days' time, to explore different photographic scenes to those offered by a climate currently scorching the population with temperatures in the 40's (Celsius that is, and not minus!).... although I understand that V.I. is the mildest part of Canada; whatever comes, I shall enjoy anyway! Thanks for the forestaste.

Great photos that show that you don't have to have "grand" scenery for grand photos. But you do need light! Liquid Gold is a perfect title.

ladyfi said...

Such beautiful shots!

s.c said...

Great shots. Like them

Adrienne said...

Love when the ice and/or water pick up the sky - and there's such a special feel to that in the wintertime! Lovely shots!

catskillblogger said...

Laura said...

We can only seem to get about a one day thaw before it's back to the deep freeze. Spring has to come eventually!
