Great monochrome but I like it because of the reflection. :)

Lovely - looks rather abstract.

It seems a bit inane simply to say 'interesting' - but it is. It draws one in, makes one peer and wonder.

Actually, a sense of desolation overwhelms me when I look at this, as if the turtle was fortunate to have finally found a little respite from its struggles.

Julie said...

Hah! I nearly missed it! What a deliciously start image you have composed for us this week.

Looks like it's calling for help!

Zen and wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate your comments. Yes, the light. It just occurred to me that I saw turtles sunning on logs in Emerald lake on my last visit. I didn't have a long lens (only my 85 mounted on my other camera loaded with color film) with me so I shot one with a wide angle and you can't even see the turtles. There were three in a row, Mama, Papa and the baby.

Makes you wish you had waders so you could get even closer but then you would destroy the scene. And we never want to do that. You got the turtle just right.

Beautiful reflections!

I enjoyed your flowers in the sky too. :-)
Love your header image.

Nicole said...

Sweet catch!
That looks great in b&w!
