Well done, nice sky reflections.

Oh wow, great reflections.

Erwin said...

Nice reflections ... painter(s say that a reflection can give more or additional information about the original image... wich could also mean that in that reflection there is more of the truth.
Nice composition & beautiful sky.

Fun photos for Sky Watch Friday, it is tricky to get a good reflection but yours are so clear.

I am learning how to do reflection shots. I have a LONG way to go. These are perfect with the sky and all. Who would have known that there are blogs for bird watchers (newbie blogger that I am). I love birds so like Arnie Schwartz I'll be back.

Naturegirl said...

I am sure captivating in person!

Larry Jordan said...

Awesome reflections captures Kallen! Perfectly framed and very artistic!

I can't help but think about the poor birds though when I see big buildings of glass like these.

Millions of birds are killed every year by window strikes. It is second only to bird death caused by loss of habitat.

I urge everyone to watch this video to learn about the Fatal Light Awareness Program.

Jim said...

Love the sky in the windows. The last with both building and sky shows a great contrast

Kallen305 said...

Larry, you are spot on regarding that building and bird strikes. It breaks my heart to see how many hit the windows. Especially in the spring.

2sweetnsaxy said...

Nice captures of the sky in the glass. Very nice! :-)

Debbie @Like a Rose said...
