Watery Wednesday #145

Here's to all of you for joining me this week for another Watery Wednesday! Just wanted to let you know that I'm so glad I've been able to visit so many of you... You're posting such great shot. Here's hoping I get to visit more of you this week than last week. Are you ready to get your eyes wet? Starting you off with mine....


This was the murkiest water but the turtles seemed to be loving it. I hope you like this as much as I do. There was something about the color, lighting and reflections in the water....

RULES: Create your Watery Wednesday post first then come back and enter your name and the link to your post in the spaces provided. Next, just have fun visiting the other entrants to see their posts. If you leave a comment they'll know you've visited and will visit you in return. I might have posted these before but it's been at least two years ago (smile). Have fun!

I think I could write a poem about your "murky turtle," but until it gets written, here's another one to celebrate Watery Wednesday:

IT DOESN’T TAKE AN OCEAN

It doesn’t take an ocean
Or a mighty sea,
A simple little raindrop
Is enough for me!

I also like the jewels
Scattered in the grass
After summer thunderstorms
Soak the earth and pass.

And then there’s perspiration
Clinging to a nose—
A sign of honest labor,
Or so I suppose!

Wonderful, most wonderful,
Are the seven seas,
But give me downy snowflakes
Clinging to the trees!

Nice shot - the murkiness definitely makes for a different perspective and the colors are interesting.

Andrea said...

yes the turtle seems happy, they don't see the difference between dirty and clean. And we are happy too looking at that lovely photo. Thanks for hosting this, i have lots of waters in my files, haha.
