Photo theme - Reflections

One of my favorite types of pictures - reflection from calm water. I think it's the symmetry that makes it so attractive.

Dusy Basin, Sierra-Nevadas, California


Weminuche Wilderness, Colorado


Dad's Lake, Wind River Range, Wyoming

Awesome! We haven't had one of these in awhile.

I don't really have any good Adirondack ones, but here are two from Banff Provincial Park in Canada from my vacation to Alaska in 2007:

Tyler, thanks, and the shot was taken in the Pharoah Lake Wilderness, on Pharoah Lake itself. Justin's "stomping grounds!"

Great pictures everyone! I agree Wldrns, that's a great shot!

2. Weller Pond
3. Olmstead Pd
4. Crater Lake NP
5. Northern Maine, near Cape Split (and near a sizeable cliff called, ummm... Dick Head Can I say that here?)
