Reflections in Still Waters

The Ottawa River near my home in the country was so calm late this afternoon that it was like a mirror. I was enthralled with the amazing reflections and had to take some pictures. It helped that the clouds in the sky were interesting, like shredded paper.

There are many farms and houses along the river and they were all perfectly reflected in the water. 

This is the ferry that crosses the river between the Quebec shore and the Ontario shore. The splashes of red on the ferry docks and their mirror images in the river look so intense against the watery blue background. 

The sun was beginning to set and I managed to get this picture, which looks almost like a Rorschach test. The mirror-image clouds were incredible. Wow!

These are all brilliant photographs. I love the one with the dab of red, but then I came to the final one and that is breathtaking.
