As I said in last comment - you're on a roll!
Rays of golden light reaching from indigo clouds... and the rose colored water in the bottom photo - well, incredible. In fact, that bottom photo looks like a Monet water lily painting. The clouds given texture by ripples in the water looking like brushstrokes - amazing!

LOVE absolutely LOVE the water photo- I wish that I could paint like that- really wonderful shot, Steven!

Lovely post.
Adore any kind of reflective shot, windows, cars, or water always surprising.
Plus I am such a cloud person.

cheers, parsnip

Elisabeth said...

Fantastic contrast here, Steven, above and below: the ethereal sky above and the liquid water below, both flecked by fluffy cloud. Wonderful.

A visible prayer!

Do you live in paradise?

steven, I still can't get straight from your comment avatar on my blog to your blog. It doesn't matter so much to me because I have you in my bloglist, but there might be others who are put off by Google saying that 'this blog does not exist'.

I took a picture on the river once at sunset. the sky was cloudless and pink reflecting in the river which was also pink.

Don't you love it when that happens?

Renée said...

I love the cloudy sky like you do. He can show and teach us so much...
very special pictures!

steven said...

valerianna - when i got home and uploaded that picture i too was struck by the fortune of the ripples that resemble brushstrokes. there's probably software that can do that for you if you want but i don't own it - don't want to actually!! thanks for your kind comment. steven

steven said...

linda sue thankyou. it was pure fortune that it turned out that way! steven

steven said...

angryparsnip i really appreciate clouds and they figure priminently in this blog. more and more i'm interested in reflections. so i'm learning about seeing them, then about phorographing them, then about knowing why they need to appear here. steven

steven said...

eliaabeth thankyou! they were almost simultaneous - the sky as it is shown here and the puddle reflection. steven

steven said...

stefanie - what a lovely way to express this. thankyou. steven

steven said...

friko i have a very tolerant approach to the blog - those who arrive here were meant to. i'm grateful that you care to let me know of the difficulty that some may have experienced. i hope that their persistence and inventiveness overcomes the googly-eyes monster!!! steven

steven said...

ellen - like living inside a glass ball. steven

steven said...

steven said...

steven said...

steven said...
