Thanks for sharing with us all - such a fantastic photo.
I really love reflections.
Capture and colours are 1st class.

This must be a swamp and you are looking down into it and capturing the reflections? Wow. I am impressed.

AphotoAday said...

Very introspective with that reflection... Very nice...

Erik Donald France said...

Totally awesome photo!

babooshka said...

Wonderful reflection. The light is fantastic.

Travis said...

Nice. You've really done well with the light in this one.

Birdfreak said...

Awesomeness!! The water is so peaceful and relaxing.

Charles Gramlich said...

Those streaks of light are amazing.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, all. :)

Abe; You're close. Looking down into a local creek (although much of the surrounding area is somewhat swampy, particularly after a good rain.)

ivan@creativedwriting.ca said...

Wondeful pic.

Agree with Charles.

It takes guts to shoot into the light.

BTW: I keep failing Roschach inkblot tests. Where all others see a bat or an interface that becomes a goblet or something, I see a vagina.

I've got to be deranged... Just to centre right of your outstanding photo I see a Sasquatch. See him?
Kinda hulking and very tall, sort of superimposed on the tree.
Well, the full moon has just barely passed, but I'm fixin' to go get some heavy duty buckshot and bag me a Sasquatch.
I think they call it Big Foot in the U.S.

...I'll get betta.

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

Lana, what a GORGEOUS reflection photo. :D I love finding them too. It's a magical moment.

Hugs, JJ

Merisi said...

Magnificent image!
I have never seen crepuscular rays in a reflection, really stunning capture, congratulations. :-)

laughingwolf said...

PJ said...

Lana,
I am very familiar with Abita beer but not Abita itself. I just came back from Louisiana, where DH is from, and I have to say that I'm really impressed with the way you've captured the essence of the place, at least for me. It's a wonderful sky-graph.

JR's Thumbprints said...

Just to the left of the sun's reflection I see a human shadow -- two very long legs and one short arm slightly bended. Caught my eye right away.

Donnetta Lee said...

Very beautiful! Makes me a bit dizzy!

Jacob said...

Incredible! I love photos of the Sun.

Lana Gramlich said...

All; Thanks for the kind words. :)

ivan & jr; I see it now that you mention...too much!

pj; Ironically this picture was taken in Abita Springs, too. Just a couple of miles from my house. So long as you know the beer, you're a friend of mine. *L*

ivan@creativewriting.ca said...

I think JR saw something too.

Heh. Now we can't tell anybody.

Arija said...

That photo has real magic in it, like an illustration of a faerie tale told long ago. Just wonderful.

Louise said...

Simply stunning.

Britta Coleman said...

Beautiful.

Ello said...

That is an amazing photo! Simply amazing! You are so talented. I'm jealous.

Michelle (artscapes) said...

Clever shot!

Paul Maurice Martin said...

Great and "reflective" on more than one level.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, all. :)

Lisa said...

Wowowow ~~ SO beautiful!!!

Natural said...

beautiful shot once again, Lana. awesome.

Larry said...

Interesting photograph! Wouldn't it be strange if images of the landscape reflected off of the skY?

Lana Gramlich said...

Lisa & NW; Thanks. :)

Larry; It would be, indeed. I wonder if it would give us a headache. It sounds like it would. I wouldn't want to try to drive under those conditions!
