Water

I took all these water photos this Summer. My favorite photo is the arch of our beautiful Stone Arch bridge here in Minneapolis. The fish tail photo was also taken there. What a perfect tie in with, "Me Kissing a Manatee" All the other photos were taken at Grass lake and Wood lake. One of the best things about being a Minneapolis Minnestotan is our access to such wonderful lakes. And they all have walking trails. I really feel I've captured their beauty with these photos. And it's a good thing because soon they will be covered in ice. O.K. technically it's still August. But I know it's coming.

What exquisitely beautiful photos, Sharon! I can't imagine how they built that bridge, the way it's arched over the water in perfect rows of bricks--did you see the keystone (the triangular piece at the top that holds it up)? I loved the duck in perfectly smooth water with just its ripples on the surface and the reflection of the clouds. The third photo reminded me of a lily-pad pond or maybe algae? The fourth was a shimmering lake with geese or swans? The pink fishtail could be framed and hung as art! And you end the day with a sunset and the big sky. Wonderful! Thanks, Sharon, and thanks for stopping by my blog after I was away. Love xxox
