There was just something beautiful about the reflections this afternoon on the river at Lindsay Park. It's strange that it's so warm and there's hardly any ice in January.

Those are all very nice, Mike! Very painterly looking indeed. I think #8 is my fave, though.

Very nicely seen and captured Mike. Love your artistic flair on these. Beautiful contrasty colours on these "real" watercolour portraits.

Great set of photos. Love the colours. I also really like the approach of concentrating on the reflection only - i.e. not including the object being reflected.

Beautiful and so calming! Was the water rippling just a wee bit? It sure lent towards a beautiful effect if it was. :-)

Thanks for taking a look at these and for commenting. I flipped photo 5 upside down and liked it better that way. It's as if you are looking out from underwater. The edit is above. It's my current favorite of these.
