Coming up for the Sun (and a word on reflections)

Coming up for SunTo view more of my photography please click on

It is a pretty good sign to see turtles basking in the sun, it usually means other interesting things are around. Generally I run into two kinds of reflections in water, mirror-like or muddy. This one is a bit of both. The scene is pretty much out of the camera with just a few adjustments. If you make changes to the turtle these would have to be reflected in the mirror image, and if you try this I would suggest going a little wider in the adjustments or fade them just a bit otherwise they will look fake.

  3. I had a cousin of that turtle when I was a kid. She had a rose painted on her shell. Wanting to see if see would return, I flushed her down the toilet. (She did not swim back into the bowl.)
