Reflection

Throughout Saturday night and Sunday morning, we will be driving back from our July 4th holiday in Michigan.  It's always a time to reflect together and alone on our family time together.

This pic is from last year's reunion at the family cottage.  In the early morning hours when the lake is calm, I love to go down to the grassy beach and absorb the stillness. 
And to see whatever activity might be happening so early (from my 12x optical zoom)!

Second time here. I got interupted by the phone the first time. I love this, Ginnie. The still water so early in the morning and the wavery reflection really portrays a nice moody shot. Lovely
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. I love this quiet time of the day, which I was also able to capture this year.

Hi Ginnie, this is a very lovely shot. Is this Lake Michigan? My mom's family used to have a cottage near Lake Erie when she was growing up. She absolutely loved it, as I am sure you love yours. I hope you had a wonderful holiday. smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh no, Kay. This is NOT Lake Michigan (which actually looks like the ocean because you can't see across it). This is a small lake in the middle of the state. In the early morning and late evening, it's very calm and quiet here. But during the rest of the daytime, it's full of commotion with ski jets and motorboats!

We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you. We arrived back home at 8 this morning.
Lovely Refelction here Granny...Nice shot and angle :d
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks, Nacha. I had a lovely time of reflection throughout my 4 hours of driving!
This is great! Crisp image with a lovely reflection. Nice `feel` to this photograph too...it makes me feel relaxed. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: So glad this makes you feel relaxed, Rosalyn. smile The place is very therapeutic.
The place seems so calm and peaceful. I wish I were here !
Ginnie Hart: It is, Flo, during the early morning and late evening! But the rest of the daytime it's full of commotion with jet skies and motorboats!
Lovely image Ginnie. Such peacefulness. Made me realise I need some chill out time.
Ginnie Hart: Awww. I hope you can get YOUR chill-out time, Jose Ann. Ours was just what the doctor ordered!
Wow...the water is so calm....very serene. Nicely captured, Ginnie! Hope you had a great break during 4th of July!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, H. All of it was wonderful, and now we are back home safe-n-sound.
Lovely reflection and a great way to start the day.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Helen. Even though I wasn't fishing, I felt the ethos of this pic!
Very lovely image Ginnie. Safe travels.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Bridge. We are now home safe-n-sound as of 8 this morning.

You've captured that serene quality a quiet morning can have. The 12x zoom did a fine job for you.
Have a wonderful trip to Amsterdam!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Don, on all counts!
Lovely shot. I see what you mean about reflection themes! smile We do have somewhat similar shots. I love the lure being just out of the water like that. It's wonderful smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, SL. Thanks a million.
Nice shot ginnie, very tranquil. Beats fishing from a rainy canal bank in the UK (not that I have the patience). Mike
Ginnie Hart: I think you're right, Mike. I'll take your word for it. smile Thanks.

Very nice and very peaceful looking shot. Looks like a great place to be.
Ginnie Hart: It's a lovely lake, Roger. You'd have a heyday with it, I'm sure. smile

This water looks like glass! Hope they caught some fish!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Clarence, even though that was last year. smile
This looks peaceful.
Had plans to do some fishing myself this weekend, but instead I had to change a broken dishwasher. So now we have clean plates, but no fish smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're so funny, Magnus. I'll wish for you a good fishing day soon.

So you guys are movin' an' shakin' again. Safe trips all around. Lovely picture about the one type of reflection and text about the other type. I know how one can be so snug in your car discussing and thinking about a family weekend. Putting all the stories you picked up separately together and coming to an understanding of what's happening in the family tree smile
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Louis. You got it! smile
That's a very nice picture Gin you even managed to shoot those grain silos in the distance. As with Louis safe trip to you all.

J
Ginnie Hart: Yup, Johnny. Those silos came along for the ride. How's that for the Midwest!

Thanks for your travel wishes. Both trips are now under our belts, as we are now over on your side of the pond!
Nice that you are back.. This is a cool picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Shakara.
Very nice to have you back, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Karen!
Certainly it is a very good reflection. P.D.: There is something I do not understand, these in Amsterdam, Atlanta or in Michigan... this last month you are flying constantly from a place to another one, right?
Ginnie Hart: HA! One of the reasons why I put where I am each post is because we do fly back-n-forth to Amsterdam each month, Jose. The trip to Michigan was for a family reunion, but we drove a rental van the 850 miles each way. But yes, we are always on the go!

Well done! I like the morning light a lot. This picture shows the morning's freshness very well.
Ginnie Hart: I love the morning's "new, unspoiled day" feeling, Julia. Thanks.
I like this one a lot, too. So tranquil. All the best, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks again, Dave!
Quiet sunday picture ! Like the peace atmosphere of this one !
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Zeb. Thanks.

Hi Ginnie. I'm back commenting after a bit of an interruption due to other pressures. This is a nice one. How DO these guys manage to park their boats so close to one another without them drifting apart at either end? It's all so beautifully neat and tidy -- not like the silly fishing, which is so messy and boring ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Jimbo, this was one lone fishing pontoon boat that morning. None else around. They just lazily floated around, which made for some easy pics!

Wonderful, still morning...even the fishermen seem to be doing their thing in slow motion. The reflection is gorgeous.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray, for stopping by and commenting!
