Can't quite get this right....for Weekend Reflections

Hosta leaves reflecting in the pond as well as gray sky, summer froggy and the "we live here all year now" goldfish resting or swimming about, all this for Weekend Reflections.  Enlarge by clicking on the photo.

Problems photographing this scene I gaze at so often: too many planes to focus and too much light contrast between the pond open to the sky and that part of it shaded by the roof.  (For full disclosure I should use quotes around pond.  They began life as horse troughs......)


  1. Interesting shot. I understand the problem of difficulty in focusing. It can be very frustrating.

  2. I had to smile at this. My reflection this week also had that gray sky I tried to work around. :)
    I love the fact your pond is a used horse trough - very unique!

  3. Love your ecosystem reflection ;-) Peace

  4. I sympathise - it's interesting though. Looks like milk and water.

  5. What a strange creamy effect ! Don't worry, you DID get it right... Thanks for the sharing !
