Pond Reflections

Morning Reflection

I have been in the mountains for meetings the last few days and managed to talk few images while I was there. This pond was a short walk from the retreat center.

A bridge too far...

Walking Bridge

I found this bridge during a walk yesterday. I enjoy making images this this...I think it makes you want to know what is on the other side.

One of the little ones...

Young Fox
This young fox was part of a family of 6 (mother and 5 kits) that moved in under our front porch awhile back. This was the bravest of the group even though it was the runt of the litter.


Lake Reflection
This bench sits in a small park close by. The water was dead calm when I walked by and I couldn't resist the reflections.

Grey Heron returns...with a friend

Grey Heron Standing Tall

This beautiful Heron frequents the river next to where we run our dog each day. Today he (or she) brought a friend, the Black-crowned Night Heron seen below.

Waiting for the toss...

Our dog waiting for a treat
(click on image for a larger view)

Everyday we (my wife mostly) take our dog to a local dog park near Chatfield Reservoir. She runs off leash and her favorite stop is swimming for treats in one of the ponds.  The shot show her eagerly waiting for my wife to throw a treat for her to swim to. Such intense concentration!
