Sunset And A Selfie

  Surrounded by nature's beauty at the cottage. Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada
 
I like the way reflections trick the eye. The trees reflected in the glass deck fencing in front, are hard to distinguish from the real trees behind me...or would that be the other way around!

The first one is a beautiful shot of the sky. The second is very provocative. It has a surreal shot that is very appealing.

Your decking looks like it's a great place for a spot of birdwatching together with a sundowner or two Karen?
