Reflections in a Puddle




When it rains in Arizona, the water has nowhere to go in the park where we stay. It tends to just stand around till the sun dries it up. This means there are puddles everywhere. (This doesn't happen very often, mind you!) This is a reflection of one of the park models. I love the blue skies and puffy clouds plus the palm tree, all captured in the reflection in the puddle.

I've discovered that puddles can be great places to capture reflections. This one is excellent.

Pat-- great reflection! We never did get used to the way it rains in AZ -- and how the water just stands there. (We're from the Northwest, where it soaks in!) Love the way you captured this lovely picture in a puddle.
