Spherical Shell: Creative Photography #2

The creative outcome of this photo wasn't really planned but I did like the result. The reflection in the water created a visual extension of the shell and the curve of the dome continued on, seeming to extend and reach down and around and under the surface, giving it an appearance of a sphere. This is a Painted Turtle within the shell.

Oh, I like that Ann! Very nicely done. I can identify with a turtle that lives in a dome :-) The colors in it are really nice, too.

It really is amazing how nature can offer an unusual work of art, if only we are there at the right place and the right time! And we notice, of course!

Great capture!

The thing is to notice isn't it. Earlier years, I did not always have the time or inclination to focus on such beauty and wonder that is so much a daily part of our world.
