After visiting family I headed home and drove to some of my 'typical' spots, unable to find an image that I liked. These two postings were taken at the aquaduct. I wish the sky in the corn picture was more colorful; however, it wasn't. In the opposite direction, the river was pretty rough and so there was nothing remarkable in that direction either. I took the corn picture, choosing to go as close as I could, and turned around to find the river as smooth as ice! Within 5 minutes the river calmed and the reflections were visible. Again, I wish the colors were more vibrant in the trees but I was struck of how quickly the environment had changed in such a short period of time. Maybe nature was letting me know that change can occur when you least expect it in life. Just when you think life is difficut it can all turn around. I like that idea. I hope there is some pleasure in the images because for me there was much more "beyond the view."

I'm always looking forward to your next picture, not only because they are so beautiful as these are, but because there are usually some sage words of wisdom accompanying them! Thanks for that. The reflection picture especially is breathtaking.

Yes, the reflection photo IS breathtaking! As you are well aware of, I love reflection photos...and this one of yours is absolutely stunning! I love how the clouds are reflected in the water. I wish I had captured this one! :-)
