I know those skiffs "belong" to Robert ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Bear_music, but I had to shoot them. I've driven by them lots of times but never seen such wonderful reflections.
The last day of the challenge I really wanted to get home after doing a whole lot of errands but the flash of these reflections as I drive by just "called out my name". I turned around and drove back thinking "there must be a photographer's quotation that captures that feeling!"

Thanks for the comments ... The duck is a decoy. I didn't even notice it until I was pp'ing

Good thing that you stopped to take that picture! The reflection is really special. I like it that you got close enough to put the emphasis on the surface with the dancing water pattern but wide enough to let the viewer unterstand the context

I friggen love those reflections Robt, they're just so rich, really great subject.

Coming back to look again, and THE DUCK! It's awesome. (*Upon closer viewing, is it a decoy? So much interest here.)

I'm dying for a closeup of the side of one of those boats

The ripple reflections make it look like the side of the boat isn't smooth. Nice colors. The bird looks content.
