Sky Watch Friday: Photographic Reflections



I have been participating in a reflections photo challenge this week with Quilly. I wanted to be able to combine that and Sky Watch so this is my combination offering for the two memes. This is my Jeep sitting in the driveway. I took two angles. In the first photo you see the sky overhead reflected in the gate of the Jeep. Just below that you can see the sky behind me reflected in the painted section of the gate. If you enlarge the first image you can also see a reflection within the reflection from the rearview mirror that is right of center in the photo.
In the second photo you see our detached garage and trees from the nearby woods.

Wherever you are I hope blue skies are shining on you.

Who ever things to look in the windshield or someplace besides up at the sky? Not me. You got a perfect sky in these two pictures.

Amber Star said...

I really like the reflections of those clouds. They don't look too rainy and they are just floating away up above.

fishing guy said...

Carletta: You must have cleaned that up from your travels, very nice Sky reflection for SWF.

Quiet Paths said...

Wonderful special idea to get the reflection in a car window.
Great shot.

John said...

Nice reflection shots!

Old Wom Tigley said...

I applaud you for being able to combine both meme's... it is not always easy... you have covered both to perfection with these.. and of course it's a pleasure to see your Jeep getting in on the act..

Aileni said...

I think we shall see a few such shots today - It works though, so why not. Two birds...

jientje said...

Wow, you do some very clever reflections yourself Carletta!!
I saw the deer in your garden too! You are such a lucky girl, or have I said that already?

Literally Speaking said...

There's nothing like a clean Jeep, a marvelous sky, and a beautiful woman!

Willard said...

That is really good thinking to set up those shots. I like them a lot!
It is good to think outside the box as the saying goes.

Bradley Myers said...

Like the reflection, good idea. Send those deer north, I will feed them and protect them in deer season, as long as they let me sit on my rocker and watch them.

Rambling Woods said...

as good as my pond reflections..!

Tere's World said...

very creative! I just love "reflections" shots!

Great minds -- I went outside and did this yesterday. I'm not going to post mine though. I'm still deciding whether or not I'm going to play. If I do, I found another "angle".

Very cool!

Cool shots. Great clouds and great reflections. And I love that you always have reflections within your reflections. Seems to be your trademark. And boy, is that car CLEAN. Great and - as always - clever shots.

Robert said...

Wow, I've missed a lot since I was gone. I'm skimming through to catch up on what I missed. I love the deer shots! I'll be more regular now that I'm back home. I hope you are doing well. :)

Toni said...

I love the idea of a reflection challenge! You did well!!!

Melli said...

Isn't it amazing how we "accidentally" capture more reflections than we think!? I love that you got the rear view mirror in there - and I bet that was a huge surprise when you viewed the photos! Nice job!

Gattina said...

Isn't that funny ? we had the same idea with the clouds in a car window !!

Gretchen said...

I like this one! Will have to try and catch something like it! Thanks for the idea!!!

Dianne said...

I love reflections and these are among the best I've seen!

Columbo said...

Very creative, I like the refections and I think you captured the sky and clouds.

Denise said...

No blue skies here, just grey and it is raining! Typical! Thanks for your comment, it is the closest I will ever get to a Rolls Royce too.

Craver Vii said...

A combo Sky Watch AND Reflections... You're so clever!

Egghead said...

Very cool. I haven't tried reflections but it looks like a fun new way to play with the photos.

Sweeta said...

How beautiful is the reflections. Well done!
