Watery Reflections


For this week's Watery
Wednesday, and Weekend Reflections, I'm posting shots of a place I love. This is Finn Slough, a small fishing settlement in Richmond, British Columbia.
.
The tide was in the day I took these photos, and the clear still water provided wonderful reflections.




I have posted about this unique community before...if you'd like to know more about it, you might check out this link: http://imaginationlane.blogspot.com/2010/07/finn-slough.html

This photo may be my favourite. I had the thought that it would look much the same if I turned it upside down, so I zoomed in for a closeup and inverted it. It's an interesting effect, don't you think?

So crisp and clear it's almost like looking into a mirror. Fantastic shots.

Oh, so wonderful, Lynette. I love that area. I'd rather be there right now than here with -23 temperatures! Good thing we're going to Hawaii next week. I think I can put up with the cold until then. LOL

Wonderful, wonderful images. I love the reflections and was amazed at the different hues in the wood in the fourth from the bottom. I wonder how that was created?

Great photos.

Love your captures of woodsy reflections of places and buildings that might go by unnoticed by other eyes. The upside down image is magical!

Fantastic reflection shots. It does look like a unique community.

Lyndsey said...

How interesting! I can see why you like to photograph it often. The water is so still, the tides must move in and out pretty slow.

Katy Cameron said...

I love all the reflections, it looks like a wonderful place to explore with a camera

Hello Lynnette thanks for the visit. I do appreciate it very much. You have a very fantastic shot. And the place looks very interesting. Are their people living here? Or they just come here to fish. Happy Wednesday!!

a very interesting place it reminds me of our place before when I was still a kid

Judy said...

I love it when the water is so still that you can forget which way is up! My favourite is the shot with the dog lying on the porch, watching you!

Beautiful shots, I love the reflections.

I've also lived my entire life in this area, and never been there. I must add it to my list before we move.

Stunning reflections. The place looks so serene.

Wonderful pics; so atmospheric. The great thing for me about blogging (well one of many) is that you get to visit places you know you will never see for real. Thankyou so much for sharing.

So beautiful! The reflections are crystal-clear. I would love to live in Finn Slough. My kinda place!

adrielleroyale said...

thekarachiwalla said...

Lois said...

They are all lovely pictures! The water looks like a big mirror and that last shot almost looks like a painting. Very pretty!

Of course I made it to your page... Your shots are fantastic, no kidding ! And you were right : I specially enjoy the last one : it is properly "renversant", as we say in French !

note : "renversant" means stunning, but in the sens of up side down, if you see what I mean ;)

Jack said...

What a beautiful little fishing village, so quiet and peaceful. The quiet waters make for perfect reflections.

Wow, what "weekend reflections" opportunities abound in this quaint fishing village! I'll have to check it out someday, seeing as how it's not too far away. I love the picture with the dog, especially, but they're all lovely!

your reflection fotos are just wonderful and soothing to look at. ^0^
i esp. like the details of the houses, something i'm not familiar with.
it would've been interesting to live in a place like this. ^0^
