TREES REFLECTED IN WATER


Dead and fallen autumn leaves caught in branches over river - reflections on surface, stones  under water

November 17th 2012

I don't usually interfere with my photos but I confess to tinting this a little so you can see stones on the bottom of the river as well as leaves caught in branches and reflections of trees round about.

Re. Google+

Apologies. I clicked the Google+ button and this has messed up the connection between comments I leave on your blogs and the profile linked to Message in a Milk Bottle - or, rather, the profile which used to be linked to it. The link now goes to a weird, empty, Google+ page from which it's awkward to reach this blog. However, if you belong to Google+ yourselves, either on purpose or because you, like me, clicked the wrong button (!) . . . you can add me to your circles by clicking through to HERE.

The Google+ page associated with my other blog, Loose and Leafy is HERE.

(I tried to join them into one page but gave up.)
