Impressionistic Reflections

A slight breeze and a sunny day created these reflections on the north pond in the Duck Ponds park today. I immediately thought of Claude Monet's work, especially his later paintings of the water lily pond in Giverny.




And what better music to go with these than the epitome of musical French Impressionism, Erik Satie's Trois Gymnopédies, in this case performed by pianist Aldo Ciccolini. Enjoy!

  1. "Verdant" not a word I use frankly but it kinda fits.

  4. I generally like to shoot still-water reflections but yours here grand. 'Tis a fantastic "impressionistic" view. The music ( tho' I've never heard it 'til now ), is a wonderful complement :)
