Reflections: land, sky and water

Here is a collection of photos taken at various locations, seasons and time of day that have one thing in common:  water and its ability to reflect light.  Such images usually evoke a sense of calm and tranquility - something that is always a welcome reprieve from the stress of daily life.
Cloud Reflections - Poquonnock River
Late afternoon reflected light reveals unseen overhead clouds near Bluff Point State Park, Groton, CT.

Sunset Reflections
The foreground reeds provide a sharp contrast to the bright sunset colors on the Poquonnock River

Monsoon Clouds over Trout Lake
The San Juan Mountains and summer cumulus clouds create an interesting symmetry in this lake south of Telluride, CO. 

Fall Afternoon near Esker Point, CT
A sinuous current breaks up the small ripples near the far shore, providing some interesting contrast in this small cove.

Mumford Cove, late summer
The still water allows for a nearly perfect symmetry of the land and trees.  Fisher Island, the land mass seen in the distance, is located in L.I.S. (Long Island Sound).

Fall Reflections in Pond
This small pond in Old Mystic provides a double-dose of peak fall color.  A patch of lilypads provides some texture to break up the glass-smooth surface of the water.
