Merci d'expliquer le "procédé"
Très bel effet:la première photo est très mystérieuse.

A beautiful pair of pictures!

Dina said...

Good one, Wil! I love the few minutes of the day when some windows are blinding in their reflection of the sunset.

Je reviens d’un voyage à Baltimore ou nous avons gardé nos petits enfants agés de 1 ½ et 3 ans. Je ne connaissais pas le platybus, quel drôle d’animal. J’aimerais bien prendre Quantas pour aller en Australie mais je ne sais pas s’y j’irai un jour. Tout dépend des promotions. Les pays qui m’intéressent pour voyager son l’Australie, la Nouvelle Zélande, L’Argentine, le Brésil et le VietNam. Cet été nous allons en Norvège. J’aime bien votre photo sur la reflet du soleil.

Louis la Vache said...

Nice combination of the two memes, Wil!

Arkansas Patti said...

Great capture and I love your novel approach on the second one. Often we are blinded by the beauty of what is in front of us and ignore the uniqueness behind us.
Good job.

Jossie said...

Mooie reflecties van een prachtige zonsondergang. Het duurt altijd maar zo kort. Ik ben meestal te laat met mijn camera.

Riet said...

Mooie reflectie en zonsondergang . Wil. Precies op tijd genomen. Schitterend. Fijne dag verder.
