Out perambulating today, as is my wont, I passed by one of my favourite country road sights, an old barn just beginning to take on a glow in the light that was hovering behind the overcast skies. This particular barn sits beside a small duck pond
and thus presented itself as a good specimen for the Weekend Reflections theme that James hosts. But guess what dear blog friends, I was out yet again sans camera. I can hear you, "Will she never learn?" The answer is, "apparently not." However, I hotfooted it home and returned to the reflecting pond in the car, with my camera, post haste (pardon the pun).
No, I did not stand on my head to get the second shot but flipped it in Photoshop when I got home. There are limits to what I will do to capture a scene.
I shot pretty much the same view almost a month ago so let's compare and contrast the difference a few weeks of spring can make in the floribunda of a geographical area. You will notice that the trees were somewhat lacking in foliage at that point. We can also note that the reflections themselves were quite different 4 short weeks ago, the pond chilled and disturbed (to say nothing of the picture-taker) by a persistent wind. (Yes, Photo Purists, I did manipulate the second image in Photoshop, but isn't it pretty?)
Thus ends today's lesson. To sum up: When will I ever learn?
