Cammo Reflections



Last weekend's trip to Cammo Estate was full of photographic inspiration! (see this post and this, both from earlier this week). This area of water in these photos is an odd one. It seems like a very short stretch of canal, so it is very slow moving and was still partly iced over last weekend even though it was quite a mild day. This combined with the very shallow edges thick with leaves gave us some very nice reflection shots! It was quite entertaining to watch a pair of mallards sliding on the ice, though they quickly gave up and flew away.

The different thickness off ice up to the water really makes a nice effect on the reflections.

A pair of mallard you say Juliet - I have just walked round our fields and seen a pair, which means they are already paired up for the breeding season - can't wait to see ducklings on the beck.

Branches reflected in water always catch my attention here alongside our rivers. I particularly like the second shot!

Nice photography - although I am a bit over all the ice. No doubt about it though - it does make for nice photos!

Mallards sliding on the ice.

That's a poem in itself.

Beautiful shots. I love the inverted triangle reflection of the trees in the first picture.

The water is so still that the reflections are unblemished.

I love this kind of scene. Wood and water, teasing reflections of winter sky. Wonderful.

Beautiful reflections. I love the different textures of the tree bark, and the ice makes the reflections really interesting. Nice shots! Kathy

there are ducks that overwinter on the river nearby. i saw them eating weeds that had frozen into the ice on either side of the river. they pecked away the icy covering and then tugged little bits out. i love your shadow pics. steven

Trees just make the world a better place to explore. They show you something new all the time. Nice pictures.
