Weekend Reflections on Linlithgow Loch

Here are two photos of different reflections from last weekend's visit to Linlithgow Loch.


Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo of a male tufted duck in full breeding plumage complete with a magnificent tuft on his head!

meanwhile I've got another haiku on Daily Haiku 

and I'm delighted to have two poems in this Standing Stones anthology from An Lucht Lonrach

Good to see another Haiku, Juliet - it sent a shiver down my spine.

The two photos are magnificent - love them both for quality of reflected light and the details on the duck.

The photos are beautiful. I love pictures of reflections and am always intrigued by what is different between the real and the reflection. The haiku is so appropriate. Often here, winter storms take down older trees and clean up is necessary.

I love the ripples of water behind the duck. So neat.

Whenever you mention Linlithgow, I'm reminded of the multi-talented John Lithgow. Although I love him in his movies and TV series "Third Rock from the Sun", I think I'm most fond
of his DVD called "Singing in the Bathtub". If you ever get a chance to listen, it's a delight.

Love the texture and its reflection in the first photo. The duck is fine too.

I like the detail you took on the first one ; neat reflection ! And thanks to the Crafty Green Boyfriend (what a cute title !!!) for taking the second one : the duck is gorgeous... It looks ready for convincing one of those duck lady... Spring is coming up, at last !!!

How nice the plumes pending on the back of the head!

Catherine said...

they are both great shots - love the black splashes in the duck reflection...

Ms Sparrow said...

Oops, "Singing in the Bathtub" is a CD, not a DVD!

How could anyone resist that male tufted duck?

Another good haiku.

That duck is a handsome fellow and the reflections are beautiful. Thanks to CG boyfriend for sharing with you (and us).
