Double Reflection

looks much better enlarged
The reflection in our patio door is not only of the sunset, but also of the reflection of the sunset off of the water in our swimming pool.

We'll be on the road for a week starting on Sunday. Our Internet connection is sure to be hit and miss, but I'll be checking in for sure! Have a great weekend everyone!

For reflections by other photographers go to Weekend Reflections by James.

You're right, it needs to be embiggened to appreciate the scale of this stunning view reflected. Quite the place you have there, Pat! Have a terrific time on this next adventure.

Beautiful evening sky that reflected in the glass. regards

Lucy the Cat said...

I love this picture and yes, it looks even better when enlarged. This is such a pretty picture all captured in the window with those bright flowers framing it. Plus, I'm a sucker for sunsets and the ocean.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Sweet. Such a keen eye you have!

Clarissa Draper said...

What great reflections.

Ms. A said...

That shot is wonderful, two shots in one. Love the flowers.

Nat said...

Brilliant capture, Pat :-)
Have a great road trip....

Ms. Becky said...

I enlarged and said "oh WOW!"

awarewriter said...

Very nice Pat. The rich golden color of the sunset comes through very well, yet I still pick up the red roses. Nice.

Mama Zen said...

Oh, that's really pretty!

TS Hendrik said...

You weren't kidding, it really was a lot better enlarged. That is one amazing shot.

Pat Tillett said...

Anthony - thanks so much! You are so right about the "eye." Granny always said that it doesn't matter how technical you are with a camera if you don't the "eye" for it.

faye - Thanks faye! We will!

California Girl - I am very happy to say that we are retired. We do take a lot of trips, but usually don't stay in hotels, so it doesn't cost much.

Anon - I got a point for ya!

Alex - I couldn't help but see it, I was being blinded! Thanks Alex!

Sarah - Thanks so much! Say, I keep getting messages from your school email server, saying my comments aren't being accepted.

That's a very vivid and serene reflection.
Have a great trip, Pat.

James - Thanks my friend! I'm glad she liked it. My pleasure for the link.

Laura X - Thanks so much!

KarenG - I would live in a tent as long as it had our back yard and it's view.

Leovi - Thanks Leovi!

Lucy the Cat - I'm right there with you! Even if I don't get to see it everyday, I love knowing that I'm not that far from the ocean.

Belle said...

A beautiful sunset. Have a wonderful time!

Pat Tillett said...

Nat - Thanks so much Nat! I'm sure we will!

thanks again...

awarewriter - thanks! The roses really finishes it up.

Mama Zen - thanks so much!

Tim - Thanks Tim. I think I may need a new template. One that allows the photos to be bigger.

Robyn - thanks Robyn! I'm sure we will.

missing moments - thanks so much! Ca't wait!

Belle - Thanks Belle! We will.

Megan said...

Very cool. Very So Cal!

Ann said...

if I have a house with a swimming pool, I will noi go away. I was reading this children's book, mum had to do everything when they went on holidays.

When she came home, Ah!!! that's holidays for me.

jeannette said...

If you have a swimming pool, why do you need to get away from home?? (just kiddin')

Rek said...

Fab picture...a magical reflection of brightness.

Genie said...

Have a great trip. Bud will have his foot on the Canadian border Monday...hoop de doo! Your shot this week is something else. These do not grace our eyes and camera lens very offer. Not only is it unusual, it is so pretty. Great capture. Genie

Lovkyně said...

i am so jealous of that photograph. it's exactly the type of thing i would take a picture of and in some of my favorite colors. i might make it my desktop background, actually. ^_^

Steadfast Ahoy! said...

a sunset by any other name is still as sweet. Good eye, Pat. Have a great trip.
Rosemary

Pat Tillett said...

Megan - that's why we live here! thanks!

Ann - I understand that. We really do enjoy our back yard, but we also like to get out of town.

jeannette - We love our pool, but it's really nothing more than a hole in the ground that we shovel money into!

Rek - Thanks so much Rek!

Genie - Thanks Genie! I'd like to have my foot on (and over) the border. Maybe next spring...

Ven - Please do make it your background. I was very lucky to spot it.

Rosemary - So it is! We're planning on it! Thanks!

Ebie said...

I love the pool epsecially in this hot weather. Enjoy your road trip.

When you get a chance, and when the weather cools off, the Satwiwa is really a nice place for a simple hike.

Baby Sister said...

Wow. That is just an amazing picture!! Well done Pat. :)

Ally said...

Very cool, Pat! Love the flowers too!

One Woman's Thoughts said...

Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time and have a camera in your hand.
Beautiful.

Powdered Toast Man said...

awesome pic as usual. That picture is worth about 879 words.

Pat Tillett said...

Ebie - Thanks! We will indeed enjoy it. I certainly do want to see and hike the Satwiwa. thanks for that!

Baby Sister - Thanks so much! It was a great find.

Ally - Hey Ally! Thanks so much!

One Woman's thoughts - That is exactly right! Also, that is exactly why I try to ALWAYS have a camera with me.

PTM - Thanks! I was thinking it was worth at least 913 or so...

Chris Phillips said...

I completely missed that at first.

Stephen Tremp said...

Maybe that's an angel you saw. Or some being entering our world from a wormhole. All I'm saying is be careful when you see something like this and be prepared to run!

EG Wow said...

Cool shot, Pat!

John McElveen said...

Travel Blessings!!!

John

Sharon Wagner said...

Have fun on your latest adventure. What a life!

Pat Tillett said...

Chris - I almost missed it also!

Stephen - l'm thinking wormhole!

EG wow - Thanks so much!

Sharon - Thanks! This one may be mostly relaxing. We were thinking about driving down the mountain to some fwd roads, but it is blazing hot there. Not today...

SquirrelQueen said...

A reflection in a reflection, gorgeous shot Pat.

Hope you are enjoying your time on the road.
