On Golden Ponds .......




A little corner of my world located near the
"O-Bahn Busway walking trail".
I found it quite by chance tucked away
with not a soul in sight and harbouring a wealth of bird life.



These pics were taken in the early morning with soft sunlight
picking up reflections from nearby golden willows

Magical morning light!

Valerie said...

Is it just me, or do these shots have a rather "Monet-ish" look about them?! Lovely captures Dianne.

You always manage to capture lovely light in your photos. These are gorgeous, yes Valerie, very Monet- inspired.

Terrific blend of colours and their reflections.

I'm still amazed how a camera lens allows us to discover something new even on our very own doorstep. Great find Dianne.

I am such a duck lover. These pictures remind me of my childhood and my daddy walking me to the lake to feed the ducks. It was my most favorite thing to do. Nice post that brings back a flood of memories.genie

I agree with those who commented on the Monet-ish effect. Love the soft light.
