Reflections in a Koi Pond

June 1, 2011

Yesterday for lunch I met an old friend at Alexa’s Garden Cafe located in Ballard’s Swansons Nursery.  Our table was next to the koi pond, so we could enjoy watching the well-fed and friendly fish as we ate our sandwiches and salad.  (My Reuben sandwich was excellent!)  I was especially taken with the reflections of the foliage in the water.  Here are some photos:

Lovely reflections with iridescence

This reminds me of the northern lights, which I'd like to see one day.

    The colors are breathtaking-almost magical looking! I can see what you mean about the northern lights. That’s something I really would like to see before I pass from this earth. Beautiful!
