Walking the Dog (Weekend Reflections # 220

Langhorne, Pennsylvania

I guess you could call this an ambush reflection. First I saw the puddle and then I saw the poodle coming down the path so I pretended to take pictures of trees while waiting for the lady and her dog to walk into the reflection. 

As you can see it's been cold and snowy here. :-)

Have a great weekend!

What a perfect reflection, James!! You do get the very best!! Still can't sign in so I think it's time to retire, can't expect others to do it for me! It has been fun and has given me a new awareness of a different kind of beauty!! Thank you! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Great and Happy New Year!!

That is a GREAT reflection James.

Adrienne said...

Great catch! I love that the reflection takes over...gives us more of a view than the scene itself!

I just linked but now I'm wondering if my photos represent reflections! You'll have to let me know. I'm having a blond moment! heehee! Happy holidays!

Alexa said...

Nice one James!!! I love your strategy!!! It seems like Standard Poodles are making a greater appearance these days...I went for years not ever seeing any...and in the last few years, more and more!!!

a poodle in a puddle - well worth waiting for the moment

Catherine said...

well worth waiting for - great shot...

Ruth Kelly said...

Very cool shot - it is so clear!

Norma Ruttan said...

I'm guessing this was taken in a park? I love the green coat on the dog. The reflection is crystal clear!

cieldequimper said...

Good. I'm not the only one pretending to take a pic of something else then... :-) Magical reflection.

Valerie said...

Great shot James - love the B&W effect with just a splash of green.

Admit that I've taken that approach once or twice:) Bytheway, since Thanksgiving, where I live is now free from any legal conundrums, so I can sell ... or stay. But I'm hoping for a roomier house, so I don't have to stack my paintings in the hall & have all my kids and grandkids stay overnight!

RedPat said...

Wonderful! And a great-looking dog!

Mama Zen said...

Perfect reflection!

Valerie said...

Gorgeous reflection and very well dressed doggie!

A Quiet Corner said...

You are so slick...or should I say "creative"?....:)JP

Victoria said...

Quelle élégance, ce chien ? un caniche royal qui en a toute l'allure. Oui, la neige semble être arrivée à certains endroits. Elle a épargné Paris, et c'est aussi bien.
bon week-end,

Ava

Well, I could say, shame on you ... but the picture is well worth the ambush. You never know, you may have started a new trend ... Ambush Reflections. Sounds like fun to me :)

Who doesn't do an ambush photo now and then? I frequently wait for someone to walk in the frame, in order, at the very least, to create a sense of scale. Poodle and puddle go very well together in my opinion.

Liz Needle said...

Great reflection, even if a poodle.

Karl Demetz said...

Wow, this is nice!

maryaustria said...

Oh un caniche Royal ! Avec la manie de la miniature, c'est plutôt rare d'en rencontrer, de nos jours... Et avec son manteau, il est le plus beau pour aller danser !

Chouette reflet, James, bravo !

A Quiet Corner said...
