Posts Tagged ‘Reflections’


When we visited Yellowstone National Park, I must have taken at least 2,000 photos! Everywhere you looked there was a picture waiting to be captured. Today I thought that I would feature some reflections in some of the lakes and pools that we got to see. What helped with these photos were the big puffy clouds that floated across the sky…Ready to check it out?

No words…just photos!

When we were on our cruise I was hypnotized by the lights reflecting on the surface of the water. So, of course I had to take photos and I hoped that they would come out well. I was very pleased with what I got, and I thought that today I would share these photos with you.

I started off with a photo at night of the pier in Ensenada.

My eyes were caught by the ripples in the water. To me the reflections resemble people standing around. What do you think?

Moving from the water around the ship, I turned my attention to the water inside the ship. The lights reflecting off the water look like works of art. Please let me know if you agree!

This week the folks over at Let’s Be Wild have asked us to once again get outdoors and share photos of reflections. So this got me to reflecting on what reflections I could come up with! So here we go!

In the summertime here the frogs come out big time! We wandered out to our chairs one afternoon with our evening cocktail and found a prince sitting in my chair!

When we were in Yellowstone it was on the calmer pools of water that I discovered how magnificent the reflections were there. Here is a shot at the edge of the grand prismatic pool.

The colors in Yellowstone were amazing as can be seen in this photo! You can also see a bit of the depth in this pool of water.

In this shot I captured the clouds reflecting on still water where dramatic colors lie beneath.

Amazing colors!

Nothing could be as grand though as the Grand Tetons!

Back at home, when we had a boat race in our area, I was lucky to get this shot of the boats zipping along in one our small lakes.

It was to be a day on the ocean! I am so excited to be going out fishing today, and also that I am taking you with me! So, pop a couple of Dramamine and let’s get going!

We arrive at the marina just as the Sea Wife II pulls into the pier.

Sea Wife II

We draw numbers for the fishing rotation and I get my lucky number: Three. There are six anglers today. Captain Kent takes us through the safety drills on the ocean before we head out. Our first mate is Reese and he is busy setting up the rods and lures. Captain Kent fires up the engines and off we go! As we leave the marina we are greeted by a pod of Spinner Dolphin.

As we head out, Reese gets the lines and lures out into the water. The ocean is calm with swells of about a foot.

Looking back at the Kona shore

We were out for about an hour when the reels started screaming! Stations 1 and 2 both had hits! The two anglers were fighting to bring in the fish. Unfortunately for angler number one lost his fish, but number two was struggling! Standing behind him and watching the line I spotted the silver flash of the fish as it darted under the boat. Reese grabbed the gaff and the fish was brought in! How exciting to see this 10 pound skipjack tuna!

Bringing in a fish

Soon we hit an area where the rain started to come down pretty good and we were all dampened by the rain.

Caught in a storm

Captain Kent turned the boat away from the storm and into deeper water. Looking back at the shore we see Moana Loa.

We were heading to what Kent called the abyss. The drop off there: 6,000 feet!

A View from the Boat

Fishing is a waiting game and I got to know some of the other anglers.

Reese had put the big guns out there. Huge reels with lures that resembled squid. I sat in the chair and waited.

Patience is a Virtue

The lures attracted a tropical frigate bird that hovered and then dove down towards to squid lures.

We passed by an area where they are raising Amber Jack tuna.

Well, the rest of the trip was uneventful. But then that is why they call if fishing and not catching! We headed back to the marina.

Coming back to the pier

Even though I did not catch anything today, I still had a blast on the boat and look forward to my next fishing adventure, wherever that may be! Thank you for coming along!

It is raining. It is cold! Winter has returned to the Foothills. And so has the wildlife! Step outside my back door with me to see what might be there…

I see you!

Please do click on the photos so that you can really see the detail in the photos, and those cute faces that I discovered were looking back at me!

The Real Deer View

How many deer do you see?

So, how many deer did you see in the last photo? Four? No, there are five! Check again!

And the Face to Love, Toby, was overheard saying, “Hey, I don’t care about seeing the deer! Take a photo of me!”

So I did!
