At first I thought the photo was sideways! That tree better have some strong roots... smile Nicely done with the reflections!
Larry Bliss: thank you Elizabeth...
It makes a nice image, Larry.
Larry Bliss: From the halcyon days when I had a darkroom in my kitchen and chemicals in my system. smile
As to Elizabeth's comment, it would look entirely different if rotated 90° to the left. I'm thinking antlers? smile
Larry Bliss: I will do that, retitle it, and save on all the wear and tear of taking more pictures. smile

I wonder what that bright shield-shaped object is, Larry
Larry Bliss: A log sticking out of the water...

Larry Bliss: Here's my interpretation: rivers are cool! smile

You might be interested in the Mixta photography course that some friends went on. I think it is based on Budism, but it seemed very interesting. The thing is to not think too hard but photograph that which just suddenly catches the eye. There is more to it than that of course.
Larry Bliss: Thanks Chad. I will look that up. I try to follow my eye at all times...
I like the quote

and I like the phote
Larry Bliss: Cartier-Bresson was a great thinker as well as a great photographer... glad you like a photo from my early days...

This is a picture that requires more than one look. An important quality of an excellent picture.
Larry Bliss: I am glad to provide some mental stimulation... smile
Love this a lot, Larry.
Larry Bliss: why thank you... not bad for a catless pic...

Love the reflections, Larry. Thinking is bad for the brain, period.... Others are better at it..
Larry Bliss: There's an old saying: your mind should be used only for entertainment...
