'Reflections' on a Winter's Day

Updated on August 29, 2013

A River Walk

Most of our walks are out in the countryside and are enjoyable, not only for the beautiful scenic surroundings, but relaxing for it’s peace and solitude. It wouldn’t be unusual to go out walking for a couple of hours and not see anyone at all!

The appeal, is the unspoilt tranquillity - something you can’t experience if you can hear the constant drone of traffic in the distance.

Today is different, we decide to drive into town and take a walk by the river. It’s Sunday afternoon, there was a frost last night and the temperature is about 3 degrees and although the skies are cloudy the sun is making an occasional appearance.

Enjoying The Surroundings

Of course I don’t go anywhere without my camera, but I’m not expecting to take any photos today, at first glance the trees are bare and everything seems a little ‘ordinary’ looking.

I like walking on a Sunday by the river in town, it’s a family day and I enjoy 'people watching'. An elderly couple walk by arm in arm, a family with two young children on bicycles, their dog running excitedly alongside, a young couple only seeing each other.

We see two people in the distance, seemingly together, but both walking in circles engrossed in their conversations on mobile phones. As we walked past them they were still talking on their phones, maybe they were important phone calls, but it seemed sad to me that they weren’t aware of their surroundings at all.

With that thought, I decided to stop the 'people watching' and take a little more notice of the surroundings myself!

An 'Interesting' Light

I walked to the edge of the river, as the sun came out from behind the clouds and noticed the fabulous reflections in the water. The blue of the sky and the white puffy clouds were a delightful surprise, seemingly floating next to the reflection of the dark, stark outlines of the bare trees lining the banks.

Delighted with this find I took some photos, only to find just a few minutes later, as the sun disappeared behind the clouds - the reflection had vanished!

Disappointed I was about to put my camera away, when I realised the light had become ’interesting’ and there I was snapping away again!

A Reminder

There was so much beauty in the reflections and the light of the day, yet I might easily have missed them. Sometimes a moment of fulfilment, inspiration and delight can be right there next to you waiting to be noticed, it was a reminder to ‘stop and smell the roses’ and enjoy the moment!

      Lesley, I had intended to comment on the title here. I love the double meaning of Reflections as thoughts and as mirrors. Really beautiful, inspiring, peaceful piece.

      Kind regards, Stessily

      Hi Stessily, yes it was Monet's work and his fascination with light and reflections that inspired me many years ago!

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments and observations, also your votes and sharing!

      Take care and see you soon, Lesley

      stessily 5 years ago

      Lesley, No wonder you are drawn to Claude Monet, who, like all the Impressionists, was fascinated with the interplay between light and water. Your commentary is entertaining and informative, and your beautiful photos transport me to the paradise which you call home and which you clearly do not take for granted. This page projects beauty year-round, not just on a winter's day.

      Up + UABI + sharing.

      Kind regards, Stessily

      Your reflections are fascinating, Leslie. I tried to pick my favourites but this time I have to say they all fall into that category for me. I love the mirror images and the movement in the water. I love the bare silhouettey (that's my new word for the day) trees against the sky.

      Your photos, as always take me places, they captivate and excite me. My votes to you for another treat of your amazing images. (So sad for the pair whose telecommunications were more important than the visual treat around them!!)

      I got a canon and I think it is going to be good, just need to turn the power down some for an even clearer picture and experiment some. Getting ready to have a hub with lot of pics, or maybe Jackie will. I just learned how to save an over bright picture with photo shop and really loving that!

      Lesley, What a generous, gently ironic, gorgeous sharing of your wintry feelings and thoughts through philosophical prose and poetic photos! Your photography is so expert that I feel right there, feeling the breeze in the ripples and trying to avoid the spiny branches. Additionally, I enjoyed the fun of following the links to articles by you, Dexter and Cloverleaf.

      Thank you for sharing moments from your and Nick's walk through a winter wonderland, voted up + all,

I have a new camera but haven't used it yet, I have been getting great pictures with a 10 year old Sony but it is on its last legs. Wish I had seen your camera brand before I got mine, but I have a couple days yet to try it in case it isn't up to my expectations. I know you are like me to get so engrossed in those pictures and especially when we capture a treasure! I know you have a treasure chest of those.

      Beautiful and awesome.

      P.S. Love the picture of you as a child (I assume) and the cat!! I love nostalgic photos and cats, so it had a double impact on me!

      Hi Ann, I use a Panasonic Lumix - I like the 'feel' of this camera, it has a bit of weight to it and feels sturdy in your hands, so you are not so inclined to take 'out of focus' photos, it's great on 'auto' but there are also loads of settings - I can certainly recommend it!

      Glad you enjoyed the hub, I shall certainly keep walking and I shall keep on taking the photos!

      Best wishes Lesley

      You have to tell me what kind of camera you have. Of course, I know it was your vision that captured these still and peaceful pictures. I'm in the market for a new camera, do you have any advise? Thanks for this beautiful hub. Keep walking!
