Weekend Reflections and LEM Photo Challenge - A Different Perspective

It's been rainy and gloomy here all week so reflections have been hard to find without the sun. Right now as I type this there is a rain and snow mix falling as evening begins to descend in my little corner of the world. I was out in the yard at the end of February when I took these photos of our small fish pond. I love the reflected stone of our water fountain. I hope you'll enlarge this to get the best view. When I sit and look at it intently I want to be transported to the fairytale world it seems to emanate from.
When I moved to the end of the pond and looked back I was able to catch the sky that had fallen into the pond and imagine that this was the scene the fairytale world was looking out at.
I hope you enjoyed this little escape from reality with me.
