Blue Monday: Grebe On A Glassy Lake

I took this photo of one of the grebes at Thorpe Lake before my swim there last week. The reflections of the sky were so beautiful. Open water swimming is just the best physical and mental exercise there is! I get to watch these glorious birds, along with all the other residents of the lakeside, while I swim through those smooth waters every week. The simple pleasures in life are the best. I shall share this pleasure with everyone as part of Wex Mondays this week. Good luck to everyone entering!

Lock Gates and reflections

The Saturn Trail on the Basingstoke Canal is the perfect landscape in which to reflect upon the beauty of nature!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

My choice for this weeks challenge is an abstract portrait of my partner, Simon, caught out in Camden Stables Market. I really liked this unusual mirror and the glimpse it gave me of Simon in its multi-faceted reflections. Anyone who knows him should recognize him instantly!

Confession time!!! In 2012, on our first holiday to Kos, Simon took me for a wonderfully romantic, moonlit dinner on the harbour front in Kardamena.

However, the photographer in me interrupted our meal before it was half-way through, grabbed her kit and tripod and dashed over the road deserting her long-suffering partner!

So, shamed as I am, I did get this rather lovely shot of the golden moon rising above the bay, it’s reflections mingling with those of a night-fishing boat.

I dedicate this one to you, my darling Simon. Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂
