...found in a small pond while out riding my bike.

I've been doing a lot of b/w entries of late and had planned on doing this one in color, but the b/w version just looked too cool to me.

Expecting a sub-5 out of this, but hopefully it will also pull in some good comments from those that do like these sort of images.

Post-challenge notes:
Well, sometimes this place surprises me. Never expected a 6+ out of this. It stayed in tiny violin territory most of the challenge, touching 6 a couple of times but never going over. Then it shot up in the last couple of hours.

Looks like strong appeal for a narrow crowd with this one. I'm pleased.

I thought this brilliant and left you a brilliant comment that disappeared, something about light.

I'll say what I said on FB again- Very nice capture. This is very well done. If I had voted, it would've gotten top marks from me. Again, well done.

WOW! I would like to think of a wonderful comment for this, but I am just sitting here with my mouth hanging open, wishing I'd voted in this challenge after all. A pleasure to look at. Thanks.

Nice complexity of lines and contrast. The reflected branches look like black lightning.
