Puddle and Leaves 2


There are leaves at the bottom of the puddle, and leaves floating on the surface, and the reflections of the silver birches.  The bright blue sky and its clouds have turned a purple tinged  deep blue in the reflection against which the orange-yellow of the specked leaves and the pale backs of the leaves shine out The silver birches on the other side of the road are reflected beneath the surface leaves. The shapes are like sycamore leaves but very small, perhaps they are maples – my books about trees are out in the Tardis, and the night is wet and cold. The tree with the dark reflection has shed them and the puddle has picked them up. Aha, I think I see a sycamore key in the puddle!

    • Hi, thanks for looking at my blog and for your nice comment. Sometimes I think the camera brings out elements one doesn’t see with the naked eye, but I really was puddle-chasing today, as I like the combination of leaves and water that one gets at this time of year.
