This was taken at Wekiva Springs State Park, it is the reflection of the clouds/sky and the side of the main spring. There is a set of steps near here...that is the reflection of a pole to the steps in the mid-left side of the picture...looks like a snake

Actually the pole is a tree...went back and cked it out...

Whoa! This is beautiful, Janine! I've been there... (used to live in Winter Park)... and never saw what you've captured. What a sense of beauty you have!

this is beautiful and right up my alley of what makes a photo of water so intersting and inviting...

I agree with Tom, this does look like a work of art..

Personal best - Way to go!! Since my photo was also an abstract at just about the same intestity level, and there weren't too many abstract photos to look at in this particular challenge, I had to come back and look again. I love it! Great job.

A piece of art! Unfortunately most of DPC voters won't appreciate this. Hopefully I am wrong.

lovely colours and ripples in the water
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:14:36 PM
What belongs to the blue day? I don't understand the title. Or do you mean more than one blue day? So that would be "blue days". No apostrophe. Sorry. My mom was an English teacher, but this isn't a grammar contest so...

On to what matters about the photograph. *smile*

The colors are FABULOUS... amazingly so! The irregular shapes really make this a fascinating abstract.

It's a beautiful
