Reflections

There are ways to judge the success of a fishing trip other than the number and size of the fish that are caught. (June of 2011)

    • That mountain rises nearly a mile above the valley level and regulates the amount of sun that spot receives.

  3. When I used to fish I never really cared if i caught anything or not-just being out there was enough.

    • That’s my feeling for just about all outdoor activities these days. If I really want a trout to eat I can walk down to the river in an evening and catch a nice one, otherwise I just observe what’s around me.

  4. Gorgeous, especially to see at this time of year. I need a shot of green.

    • It is raining here this week (in the valleys) and therefore rather dark. There are some amazing bright greens showing in the mosses though. Many of them actually flourish this time of year.

    • That place is only a dozen miles from home and so I visit several times in a summer. It’s always pretty.

  6. I would venture that this spot looks really different now. Snow maybe?

    • Both words are valid pertaining to the trails. Yes, there are many trails I’m sure you would enjoy. It would be entirely different hiking though compared to your area; lots of “up” to these trails.

  10. My uncle (from whom one of my names came) always says he doesn’t count fish because he doesn’t like to brag.

    • Sometimes I don’t count them because I don’t want to admit it.

  11. I love the rushing waters you show us – snow melts, waterfalls and such. But quiet, reflective pools like this are equally beautiful. For some reason, this reminds me of Van Gogh’s garden at Arles, or perhaps even better, Monet’s at Giverny. There’s a lovely impressionistic feel to it.

    • You know, I think that the whole outdoors is an art gallery, featuring something different and beautiful every day. Makes it hard to stay at home indoors!

  13. Yep. As you know I go fishing on a regular basis. And I always say that putting a line in the water is just an excuse to take in all the beauty around me!

  14. This is gorgeous – not just for the reflections but the immense scale of the mountains behind, which you can see by the size of the trees! The colours are fantastic.

    • The top of the mountain in the background is 5000 feet above the valley. I love our mountains.
