Captured during a late afternoon walk around Rainbow Harbor (Long Beach, California). Note the little grebe that swam into my frame, just below the boat’s reflection. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 35mm macro [70mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/200 sec, ISO 400, late afternoon sun, handheld)

    Celeste ~ this is so beautiful. The soft ripples of the water and the shadows on the boat give this a beautiful rich but soft velvety effect. In some aspects as well as appearing as a wonderful gown, it reminds me also of Santa, with even a flowing beard showing… it is gorgeous ~ magical.
    And I take note of that little duck who appears to be swimming around the reflections …. just an added treasure to this.

  • Sharon, thank you so very much for your insightful and very thoughtful comment!

    Boat reflections can be very ‘ho-hum’ – but this one is a beauty, Celeste! The colours are stunning and the ripply reflections I find very fascinating. Love the little grebe, which obviously wanted ‘in’ on the action!

  • Thanks very much, Bette. I know what you mean about boat reflections. I like them in person and take lots of photos, only to discard many of them in the sorting stage. The red made such a difference here.

    Brave little bird.;0)) Most striking capture.Love the lines and strong colors.Well done.

  • Thanks very much! The grebe was probably hoping for something tasty to show up. So many birds hang out in this harbor. :)
