He Walks on Water?

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

As I mentioned, this past Saturday after work I headed to Capitol Lake to photograph the beautiful fall colors. While I was there I was fortunate enough to catch this guy chillin' on a log, as well as a variety of colorful foliage. Down at the other end of the lake however, there was a miracle a happenin'. A seagull that walks on water. Of course as soon as he saw me he just stood there as if nothing was going on. Show off!

    Beautiful colors, what a gorgeous reflection!

  2. Yes, the water looks painted! The gull adds a nice touch.

    The seagull is quite funny. And the reflection is attention-getting. It's hard to know where it starts and stops. Nice photo!

  4. AB Says:

    Another avian star! I love the shimmering colours on the lake.

  5. Lois Says:

    I think he's just enjoying himself too much to notice anyone else! Those colors reflected on the water are amazing.

  6. Jacob Says:

    Looks like stained glass! Quite incredible. Yes, that silly gull is showing off. They do that.

    I love the gray dot of gull against that colorful backdrop! Wish I could see the innocent expression on his face.

  8. Scott Says:

    absolutely gorgeous. and, of course, miraculous!

  9. Linnea W Says:

    I love how the fall colors reflect in the water. Looks like that gull owns the place!

  10. Thanks to all!

    In Three Rivers: Thanks, and thanks for stopping by.

    lizziviggi: Don't let that innocent look fool you.

    Scott: Thank you. You've witnessed this scene a few time I'd bet.

  11. Lost in paradise.

  12. this is truly stunning. you should frame this. it looks like a painting and is hard to believe it is a photo.

  13. cieldequimper: Yes he is.

    Julie: Thank you very much, I do appreciate the compliment. Quite different from the scenery you are used to.

    Gorgeous autumn colors and reflections! Stunning capture!

  15. Oh wow!! that is truly amazing---not the gull but the colors and the colorful reflections. Oh the bird is amazing too but I don't think he really walks on water. haha MB

  16. I must agree with Julie, it looks like painting :-)
    Great colours are one thing, but the light here is truly beautifull and this "creates" the bird...

    Magnificent! The seagull made me smile too!
