The light was kind of nice…
Sharp, fuzzy image. I like it. 🙂
Very clever, Yoshizen! Thank you. =)
really beautiful !!!
Yhnak you, Isabella! =)
Pastel and charcoal. Exceptional as always.
It is a bit like that isn’t it? I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks you, Elena!
what we wouldn’t give for some of that liquid! lovely
Is it dry where you are, Nathan?
What a talent Karen…
Much thanks, Marija – as are you! =)
I like the golden tones in the opening images. Looks cold though; winter must be settling in up there. I like the way you find images in the reflections too.
Nick, it was beautiful today but the cold is inching it’s way here. There is a suggestion of snow in the next week…
These shots are beautiful – they just seem to capture the essence of autumn. Another thing I like especially about them is that when I flipped my laptop uspide down to see them ‘right way up’, they didn’t look at all right. I like that you just have to take them as they are, and I love the colours! Nice and warm.
Also, the first and third ones, I’m just loving the Impressionist vibe!
Thanks, Trish. Reflections seem to have endless possibilities depending on the light, water movement etc..
Very nice. Like paintings. Water – color. )))))
Yes, water colour for real! Thank you, I’m glad you like these.
These are gorgeous. I especially love the second one, that gold sheen is amazing. Thank you for the post.
Yes, I was lucky – the light was a lovely golden colour for just a few minutes. Thanks for your kind words, Elizabeth.
Beautiful colors in the reflections. A mat, a frame and a prominent place on the wall is what they are all begging for and justly so. They would be stunning on the wall.
Thank you, Shez. I guess I really should hang something on my walls soon! =)
Or at my house, when you run out of space. 😉
I spend a lot of time looking at and photographing lakeside reflections. Love these images Karen, especially that third one.
Reflections seem to have endless possibilities, don’t they?
Thanks very much, Ray.
I love these reflections Karen. Beautiful colours.
I was fortunate with the light and all the pastel leaf colours – subtle but interesting, I think. Thanks, Adrian.
“easy like Sunday Morning” beautiful gentle tones, Karen.. the 2nd one – The Princess of the Lake ..
A very nice comment, Helen! Thank you.
All lovely, Karen, but i find the geometries in the final shot captivating. I hope your mother doesn’t tire of reflections too soon 😉
Well, I’ll just go with the flow… 😉
Thanks very much, Alessandro!
Nice work with reflections Karen.
They almost already look like an impressionist work 😉
Thanks you, Tahir. Much appreciated.
I was going to say like charcoal and pastel …and then I saw Elena’s comment!
Beautiful “paintings” -as always, Karen!
That is interesting you had the same thought! =)
Much thanks, Marina.
Very fine photos, Karen.
I’m glad you think so, Bente!=)
Wow! Your pictures are always so interesting and beautiful. It’s great that you doing this blog. I love keeping up with what you are doing.
Hi Ann Karine, thank you. I’m glad you get a chance to drop in here sometimes. =)
Your compositions are just perfect – just the right levels of light, excitement and colour. These are great, Karen!
Richard, thank you. ‘Light excitement and colour’ – very nice descriptors. =)
The shapes, designs, and colors in these is just fantastic!
Love these Karen!
Hi Allen – glad you do! Thank you.
Wonderful abstracts very nicely done Karen!
a lovely set. LIke me you are following what the season’s can reveal!
Thank you, Karl. Yes, the seasons are an ever-changing canvas.
I like the second from last, very good set.
Much thanks, Jim!
harmonious Karen. A lovely take on autumn.
thanks, Marina. It looks like we may have snow in a few days. How is sunny California? =)
Good set. First one is one I like the most
Thank you, Todor!
Whoa. The top on is my favorite of this bunch. It has a certain kinetic balance that is especially appealing. At a glance, it seemed like a digitally-mainipulated image, though on further inspection, you discover that nature beat Photoshop to the punch… again!
Hi Gabriel, yes nature just doing it’s thing. Thanks for your kind comments.
Thank you, Scott.
your works are fantasy worlds
Thank you, Emma. An interesting comment.
So beautiful! An upside-down tree in water! Golly you have an eye, dear Karen! 🙂
Gigi, thank you! Upside-down is often my specialty! 😉
These are really great photos. The hint of colors here and there is so wonderful. 🙂
A little autumn gold… Thanks, Nandini!
These too are very nice – the soft focus is almost like reflections on thin ice.
The colour tones are so reminiscent of something, especially in the first and middle ones, I am not sure which something though (and not my cat, though that too).
I suppose, very soon it will be thin ice!
🙂 Thank you, Ephem.
Really lovely! I’m working on a collaborative drawing-installation project just now that’s based in these delicious skeletal forms, so I find myself sinking into these images completely … absolutely adore bare trees, and how much individual personality they each have.
Tress do have incredibly personalities when they are stripped down, don’t they?
Thanks so much, Sydney. I look forward to your tree project!
Thank you, Nareen.
