That's a pretty big pond. The sky is sure colourful and you captured it nicely in the reflective water.
Lately I've been hearing this catchy little jingle on a TV commercial. "Just another ordinary miracle..." Your photos capture another ordinary miracle we see so often, RC. Just gorgeous, all of them.
I'm very flattered by your kind words.
But, you also hit the nail on the head. Its one that I actually think about quite alot. How wonderful is it that we have such beauty around us to TRY to capture? Most of my shots are of nature and I figure I am just lucky to have them to shoot. I try to give thanks for the beauty around us, and the resources and health to enjoy it every day. They ARE miracles.
And, if I keep at it, I figure one of these days I will be able to do a decent job of catching some of those wonders. :)
