(literal) Reflection

Your Mother was right when she told you that things aren’t always what they seem. The photos show a Silver Maple growing by our lower pond. My older daughter grew the tree from seed while we were still living in Indiana. When we made the move to Pennsylvania she dug up the sapling and brought it along.  The image on the left shows the tree and its reflection in the still waters of the pond below. While reflecting on its reflection (sorry) I decided to borrow one of my father-in-law’s photographic tricks and focused (literally) on the water. The photo on the right is the result rotated 180º but otherwise unaltered. The ground into which the tree appears to be rooted is the lower bank of the pond. Pretty nifty, don’t you think?

      • My pleasure! This new comment is from WA again, as we made it home yesterday evening. About 14 hours of travelling, with 10 of those on a plane with a 10 month old in the lap. Not for the light of heart.
