Clouds in Water



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I was taking pictures of the water lilies and flowers in Biltmore's Italian Garden when I noticed the clouds reflected in the waters of a pool. I thought they looked pretty neat.

In your other post, you are in a cloud, now the water is in a cloud!! You might say the water is clouded over! It is striking, though.

Evanir said...

Viva a vida com muito amor.
Mate saudades,enquanto é tempo.
Peça perdão ,mesmo que seja você o ofendido.
Recupere o tempo perdido ,procurando ser feliz nas coisas de Deus.
Faça um carinho,alegrando alguém que esta triste.
A todo instante,fale uma palavra especial para
quem necessita ouvir.
Com seu amor podera fazer mudanças em muitas vidas.
Creia você pode não mudar tudo nesse Mundo.
Mais poderá fezer no coração de muitos.
A morada de Deus.
Um Domingo na paz e na luz de Jesus.
Bjs no coração.
Evanir

hmmm what a very catchy title for a post and it literally describes the picture - the clouds in water are clearly reflected. love it.

The water is always honest.

It reflects whatever falls on it.
