Christmas in Black and White

White Picket Fence ~ Still Pond, MD


The reflection of the lights is in a long puddle of standing water in the driveway after a BIG rain. Since it was nighttime when I took these photos, I felt them only appropriate in black and white.

Just the Reflection in a Puddle
I was amazed at some of the detail I was able to capture in this shot...especially on the upper end.

After shooting the fence, I spotted this fallen branch with its beautiful reflection as I was walking through the neighborhood. When it rains there, it stays there. Guess that is life of the Eastern Shore.


This post is lined with Weekend in Black and White and Weekend Reflections.

  5. These are great. I wouldn't have known what the fence was if you hadn't told us. Quite a light show from the reflection.

  9. So love that beautiful illusion of the fence and rain puddle by night light - especially the first one! Very artistic! And the tree leaning over the puddle has a sad beauty!

  12. I like the first and the last. They are both so different. I like the lights and their reflections in the first - a tricky exposure! I love the reflections and the serenity in the last one - so beautiful.
