Weekend Reflections

Usually you can trust a reflection to reflect the objects or subject as it is. However, this is not the case of this gull. The gull appears to have its beak open in the reflection, whereas in reality the gull's beak remained closed.... strange?!Please click on the photo to see an enlarged version.

That is so cool! It's very interesting they way it's distorted.

For some reason your link wasn't working, maybe because you linked to your blog instead of this specific post. I changed it and it seems to work fine now.

What a great capture! Very interesting effect. Kathy

Beautiful photo. The open beak is probably caused by the curve in the ripple, water can create some amazing effects.

What a delicious reflection. The water has such a feeling of liquidity and presence.

Freaky, the water must have reflected the true nature of that birdy. Calm at surface but there is a beast inside. Probably.

That's really a cool observation Ann. I'm not sure I would have spotted it.

I relly ca,'t be credited with seeing it when I took the photo. I only noticed it when looking over my pictures after downloading.

Very nice reflection.
The ripples in the water gives more life to the picture also. Great! :)

A very nice effect. Mercury of water? :-)

Mary said...

Neat reflection! It does look like the bird's beak is open. Maybe his reflection is talking to him :-)

I like how the rippling water has distorted the reflection. Neat photo!
