New Zealand: Flax reflected

with 15 comments

Just because I stopped showing pictures of New Zealand after returning from the big South Dakota trip doesn’t mean you couldn’t have been regaled with more of them. Here, for example, is a view from February 22 showing flax plants reflected in one of the South Island’s Mirror Lakes. No upside-down sign needed.

    • Thanks, Janet. Reflections are fun to play with photographically, and this place called out to be photographed.

  2. Have you regaled us with a word origin post of regale? I’d be interested.

  4. It took a few seconds for me to realize what they’d done with that sign. Very clever.

    I still haven’t quite sorted out the reflections here. The flax reflection seems to be threaded through other reflections in the water – or is that underwater growth? Everytime I look, I see it differently, which makes for an image as intriguing as it is pleasing.

    • Some low aquatic plants seem to be on the surface of the water, but after half a year I’m afraid I no longer remember everything the flax reflections were intermingled with. Guess we’ll have to let the mystery be.
