Five Colorful Images

Weekend Reflection ~ Orange You Glad It's Friday?

1. The first image is a puddle that I spotted at sunset. I snapped this from the car, attracted to the colors but unable to pause for much longer than I normally would to cross the tracks and make a sharp turn.

2. I grabbed the sky shot from my back yard, shooting hurriedly because a plane doesn't wait around.

3. Wildflowers in Shenandoah National Park are the focus of my photo collage for Floral Friday.

4. Today was the last day for a local store that dealt in pet supplies and ponds. The owners of Noah's Ark have retired. I took this picture through the fence from the parking lot.

5. Same place... most of the pond supplies and statuary were gone but the little bridge was still there. Back in 2014, I posted some photos of the lily ponds there.


  1. You wil be saad to seee this place is now lcoses but I suppose everything has to end sometime. I hope you have a wonderful weekend

  2. Wow! Amazing puddle colors!
    Noah's Ark looks like a really neat place to visit. I hope the owners enjoy retirement.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. ...yep, it's a colorful world these days.

  4. Neat shots. I especially like the last one of the bridge. Hope you have a nice weekend!

  5. You know we should be able to contact planes that fly over us and ask for a turnaround. After all they are flying through our sky for free. We could charge them!!

  6. Love that puddle image...beautiful and abstract.

  7. Love the plane with contrail, and cool puddle abstract!

  8. Your wildflowers will get me any time, but today I am wowed by the puddle - awesome! Happy Memorial Day to you!

  9. Love the little bridge. Too bad the place had to close when the owners retired...couldn't sell it?
    Also love the reflection in the puddle. I've always loved puddles, although I no longer jump into them as I did when a kid with rubber boots!
