Ryan, this is very, very beautiful! I love the colours of the rocks and trees and of course the reflexion is wonderful!

I hope Missouri didn't get affected so much by the snow and cold temperatures. I have seen pictures of the Middlewest, they said, mainly in Oklahoma, Illinois, Missouri and 2 or three other states, which have been affected.

I guess you are well, since you've put up those very nice photos! :)

Greetings, May

Thank you May! I actually took this photo for you. Not just because of the reflection, but because of the little sign you can read if you enlarge it. I told you about these signs before, how they're all over, and this one had a nice background to go with. :)

You saw pictures of our icy weather? Yes, Okla got the worst of it. In Missouri, it was the central and north parts that got most of the ice. We got a little near St. Louis for two days, enough to be pretty without doing any damage. But northwest of us there were whole cities without power and lots and lots of car accidents. There was so much ice on the power lines in some places that the poles snapped in half. They say maybe we will finally have snow instead of ice by tomorrow.

Greetings, Ryan

Hi Ryan! Good to hear you haven't been affected by the blizzards that hit the Midwest! And, of course, this picture is absolutely beautiful! Greetings, Anne

Hi Anne, and thanks! Of course, the ice and rain will continue for another week, so we'll see what hits before the end of it.

Thanks Marilyn! There were so many nice angles and colors and patterns that I had trouble just picking a few to upload. Ryan

Hi Claudia! Thanks for your comments. I'm happy you like the photo. I am going to try to visit here tomorrow when it starts to snow.

Greetings from the Middle, Ryan
