What is it about reflections that causes us to pause, take a breath, sigh, and reach for our camera?

  1. Beautiful photos. I think my favourite is a tossup between the first and the last. I love the little pool, and the autumn colours reflected in the first photo that leads to the tall tree and wonderful. Thanks for joining in Margo.

    Your photos are simply beautiful! I liked them all but especially the little creek. Thanks!
