Cee’s fun foto challenge: Reflections and shadows

Today I’m participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge to show photos featuring reflections and shadows. You can click on the photos below for a larger view.

I thought I’d use this challenge as an opportunity to share a few photos I took earlier this week after we welcomed some rain in San Diego. I wanted to photograph the raindrops and although there isn’t much colorful to reflect in the garden at this time of year, I had fun finding reflections of the other plants, as well as the iron fence behind the flower wall. These pink flowers are actually snapdragons I planted a few weeks ago.

Raindrops have such an amazing way of capturing the light and reflecting it.

This next image makes me think of a frog staring at me with big eyes on the top of its head!

I love how the straight iron fence becomes so curvy when it is reflected in the raindrops.
