Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

This week’s challenge was an easy one because we were in Manteo, North Carolina on the Outer Banks this weekend, celebrating my sister-in-law’s birthday. We stayed at the Tranquil House Inn, a lovely place on the water, and I was able to get some good pictures of reflections right in the vicinity of the inn.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    You nailed the challenge, Susan, these are great mirror reflections. We’ve never stayed in Manteo, but have been there a couple times. Tranquil is a good description of the area.

      We’re going to have to get you out here, Stacia, to see our water in person. I’ve only been to the Rockies once, when my parents gave me a week’s ski trip in Colorado one Christmas break during college. It was gorgeous.

  9. Talk about mirror images! These are all so wonderful!
    The light in the first photo is so well captured, too. 🙂

    Wow! These are really beautiful shots!

  12. ooo– you folks are enjoying some beautiful reflections. You must visit Dianna’s post this morning too which shows reflections on the water by night.
    These are perfect in very still waters. Beautiful photos, Susan. I love the signs of Christmas with the wreaths on the white inn’s door and by the windows–then the red bows on the boat. Have a wonderful week!

    These are great, Susan. Looks like a charming place.

    Isn’t Manteo just a beautiful little town?? Great pictures; great reflections!

  15. Simply beautiful. I was going to say I love the 1st one best, however when I went back for a second look I couldn’t decide…they are all equally beautiful. Love the red bows.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
