Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “ripples”. Remember you can click on the photos below for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

Ripples can be very subtle if there isn’t much water and that water isn’t disturbed. You barely see a few ripples in the water reflection of this seagull at Coronado Beach.

When ripples are more numerous and wider, they can distort the water reflection more. I like the shape of this white pelican’s reflection in the water because of these specific ripples.

And when ripples are even more numerous, the reflection becomes unrecognizable. This pelican’s white feathers give a nice glow to the ripples in front of him.

    Many thanks for these fascinating photos. Ripples and reflections fascinate me ~ be they associated with the ocean or just puddles.
