The sun reflecting in water has always fascinated me. I saw these reeds on the Turnbull Game Preserve and like the way the sun make the reed a near silhouette. Nothing too special for a Sunday, but I liked the play of light and dark.

Good morning Don,
I like the color very well. The reflections of the grasses and the sun are very well expressed. The entire presentation is perfect.
<<This morning it was snowing again. The streets here are regularly cleared of snow, so that we can also travel by car.>> I wish you and your family a beautiful Sunday. Enjoy the warm room.
Dear greetings Christel

I like the graceful droop of the grasses and how just about the same amount is cut off the grass at the top and the relection of the grass at the bottom.
