Reflection in a puddle

with 8 comments

This post is response to the Photo Challenge on the Daily Post “Shine”


This is a puddle in the parking lot of Kits Beach Park: we have been having a lot of rain lately. Together with a painful toe condition (rectified on Friday afternoon) that has been restricting the amount of time we have been walking and cycling. So the number of photos I put on flickr and instagram dropped. So that has been rectified too.

This post is also being created on what WordPress calls its new improved editor. I suppose I just got used to old one, and I still prefer to post that way.

And this is the first time I have used this blog to respond to a photo challenge, and, given the response to this one, is unlikely to be the last.

  4. Stephen, I like everything about this shot: the reflection itself, the sprinkles of leaves or whatever the little white bits are. Definitely take part again. (I liked the old WP posting, too.)

  5. “the little white bits” are part of the mix of material in the tarmac/asphalt: the reflection of the blue sky was not strong enough at the bottom of the frame so this is simply clear rain water overlaying the surface of the car park. The transition is so smooth as to be seamless.

    Sustainability and tea are both passions of mine!
