Fall reflections on Monksville Reservoir

Yesterday when I drove down to Wayne to do my ‘big box’ store shopping, I took my camera along just in case. When I got to Monksville Reservoir I was glad I did. The fall colors were glowing in the morning sun. I just stood there for a while drinking it all in. Then I walked out on this floating dock to take some shots. It’s not quite peak yet, but very close.

The only disturbance in the water were tiny ripples fanning out from the slight movement of the dock as I walked out on it.

Taking a much closer look at the reflections causes a case of confusion! Which way is up? The photos end up looking like abstract paintings instead of photographs. Watch out they don’t make you dizzy!

Beautiful, is it not?
I can’t wait to get the canoe out this weekend! More to follow!

Please note: These photos were not enhanced in any way. They are just as they came out of my camera. No tweaking of colors.

Really beautiful!

You were trying to make us dizzy, weren’t you?!

They truly are stunning photos, I can’t even imagine how beautiful it must be in real life.

Spectacular - I just love the first photo as I almost feel I am standing on the platform gazing across at the magnificent fall colours.

Susie, well .. not intentionally! Thank you!

Joyce, glad you enjoyed them. And glad you could join me on the dock!
