Cyndie borrowed my phone to take a picture. She took three. When I got the phone back, I showed her the last one and asked if she meant to take it.

She hadn’t.

I like it. It’s got an aesthetic that appeals to me.

A happy accident.

Inverted Perspective

Looking down to look up toward the sky by way of reflections on water.

I like the similarities and the difference between the two images. They were, in fact, reflecting the same overhead view, just from different distances.

That break in the clouds never materialized yesterday. It wasn’t non-stop rain all day, but it was gray, damp, and cloudy enough to squelch motivation for outdoor adventures. Having Delilah up here this trip forced some walks outside which led us to the bridge where I captured these images.

Here are the un-cropped versions that reveal how I achieved the two different depths of focus:

This morning appears to be picking up where yesterday left off, in terms of cloudy sky and potential for rain. I am very curious to find out how much of the precipitation of the last two days has also fallen on our Wintervale property. Reviewing the radar images leaves some questions because of the spotty coverage of rain.

Here’s hoping our parched land received a respectable dose of the moisture because it was sorely needed.

We are heading home today, so we will soon find out. Happy to have gloomy weather for our departure. It is always a lot harder to leave the lake place when the weather is gorgeous on a Sunday.
