Photo Challenges

WWE #30: Golden Reflections

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #30 Photo Challenge.

These are two summer plumage Horned Grebe on a farm pool in Saskatchewan, Canada. The golden reflections on the water aren’t from a sunset, the photo was taken in the afternoon.

Behind the pool is a weathered wooden corral fence and a large stack of weathered straw bales. Because I was lying in the mud at the edge of the water getting down to eye level with the birds the fence and bales are being reflected in the water.

I should also explain that the Horned Grebe of North America is a subspecies of the bird known as the Slavonian Grebe in the U.K.

Thanks Jez. If the breeze picked up and the water got choppy the golden reflections were mixed with blue from the sky so there may be future Water Water Everywhere posts featuring the Horned Grebe.
