First time I've seen reeds in colour. Love it. Reflections always seem inherent in reed takes.... but the randomness you've captured is a joy for me. Why? I always see uniformity. I have taken that uniformity myself. That is....I take the normal soldiery line of real/relection. You've got the difference here. You've seen individual treasures.

Thanks both. People didn't really "get" this one.
Best wishes,

Spring on my lake in the Laurentians is pollen time - big time.

In the mornings patterns made by the slight overnight breeze on this multi-coloured "dust" is quite amazing and so hard to photograph.

I think this shot is as much about the randomness of the pollen vs the vertical reeds and their reflections.

Oh, and I LIKE it, too!

That worked really well!
