Cactus reflections

I took this photo last week at a friend's house, I love the shadows on the cactus and the reflections in the window, not to mention the autumnal colours outside!

Very creative, and a fabulous photo!

Don't hold it against me, but I once took a very large knife to a cactus plant. It was a gift from a boyfriend who dumped me!
Should have seen the foreshadowing to a prickly relationship.

Lovely image though (and I would never do that now).

The reflection almost looks painted on the window. Very nice.

This is strange, but every time I click your comment link my router resets. What's up with that?

James said...

This is a really good one. It's almost as if the cactus is longing to go outside.

Carol said...

Great reflection shot...and nice fall foliage outdoors also...

Michael said...

Nice reflection. First seed I ever planted and tried to cultivate was a cactus.

This is the kind of reflection most of us miss. (Maybe I should just speak for myself here! LOL) And yet it makes such an interesting photo.

Excellent! :-)

Carletta said...

What a great capture!
It has a ghostlike appearance to it that I like.

Michelle Johnson said...

glad you were able to enjoy another walk around Water of Leith with the dippers sounding in the area. they sound like lively birds.

my router always resets everytime too. hope all is well. have a great weekend.

It looks like it's checking out its reflection!

This is a great shot, the colors are wonderful. It does look like he is checking himself out! Kathy

The "real" cactus looks more like the shadow. Nicely done.

Ellie said...

That is the only plant that can survive my care :) Wonderful picture!

Jasmine said...

Great things can be done with reflections and shadows. I love pictures reflected off water.

VioletSky said...

Nice shot. The cactus seems to be waving at the leaves outside, or at himself!

Ebie said...

Perfect reflection and angle shot!

Thérèse said...

This allows this cactus to feel like he is part of the outside world and therefore not feel lonely... :-)
Nice.

this picture reminds me of a cheeky pepperami in cactus drag going tadaa!!! I'm a bit of alright. Nice one crafty.

Thom said...

Wonderful photo my friend. It's just stunning. Thanks for stopping by my playground. I appreciate :)

This photo works on may levels -- light study-shadow play, color contrasts, reflections -- and the contrast in flora types. Nicely captured.

moorebloglife said...

That is so creative I really like it. I do a lot of floral stills and this is a great idea to add to my stock!

Rebecca said...

Great you took the time to notice the reflection! I probably would have walked right by wondering where I would see one.

Jientje said...

Reflections are everywhere, and you've found a very good one!

RuneE said...

Absolutely not the usual reflection-picture.

Bim said...

Good reflection - I also love how the sun shines through the real thing.

A ghost of a cactus staring from the outside... Very good reflection, nice subject.
