I was captivated by the reflections of pines on the water.
There are a few small lakes and ponds in this park, often protected from the wind.
On a mid-September morning, I was standing along the shore of a small pond observing the opposing wooded shoreline pines, and the subsequent reflection on the surface.
The soft breeze peacefully rippled the water just enough to break the perfect glass-like reflection, yielding an almost painted-like appearance.
The green needles on the branches provided the contrast to the overhead blue sky and the trunks of the red pines.
This print just makes things seem so peaceful.
