Weekend Reflections: By The Creekside

These are some shots I took in early spring and forgot about. What I like most about this reflection shot is the way the tree limbs seemlessly go from shadows at the creekside to reflections in the water.
Downstream a pair of geese were no doubt setting up housekeeping. Well, after all it was spring! If you enlarge this one or look very closely you can see their reflection in the water as well.
Looking upstream! Doesn't that look serene?

I really like the last photo...the dark hues of the branches overhanging the water are such a beautiful contrast to the softness of the scene. It's wonderful enlarged, especially.

I love that last shot too - I really like to see that first green haze in Spring.

I love the first shot, especially after you pointed out the seamless shadow to reflection. Beautiful!

Mildred said...

What beautiful pictures and reflections! Looks like a perfect day to enjoy the scenery. I am joining "reflections" for the first time this week.

Have a great weekend.

Very beautiful shots! I like the blend of shadows and reflections in the top photo.

That place is serene - thats a lovely photo looking upstream with the branches trailing over the water. Great reflections especially in your first photo with those bare branches reaching out towards the light.

Have a lovely weekend :) Rosie

Pretty, pretty images Carletta. I just love that last one and would love to be in a canoe floating down stream.

I would like investigating along that creek....is the water level lower this time of year? If so, I bet it would be fun to wade and fish.

Love all those shots -- the last makes me want to kayak up the stream.....

Denise said...

I'm glad you posted these Carletta. They're beautiful, so peaceful :) It's been a while since I visited - time is not my own lately - but I have had so much fun visiting and seeing what all I have missed. Have a great weekend.

Nice Carletta. I like the way the shadows slip into (or appear to) the water too. Yeah, I sort of remember Spring when the world was young and way cooler.

Al said...

Great series of shots, that does look very serene. It must be a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.

Ann said...

would love to see the goslings next time you photograph the geese.

michael said...

That's not nice to forget about your ducks. At least you got around to posting the photos.

Neal said...

It does look serene. I can imagine myself floating down through there on an inner tube.

George said...

I'm glad you remembered these pictures. The reflections are wonderful, and that last scene looks very inviting.

Raven said...

It does (look serene). Lovely.

Janie B said...

So beautiful. It reminds me of the creek on land we own and visited often when I was growing up. Very peaceful.

YES! Lets go back to spring, as Betsy suggested! :)
