I took these photos while on a sunset stroll around a lake near my home. My focus that evening was on the colorful clouds and their reflections on the lake. Of the two views, I liked the way the clouds looked in the horizontal one better, but the reflections in the vertical view gave them a more dramatic look.
Reflections on water, no matter how still the conditions, always seem to have some distortion. The image is never completely mirror perfect.
It reminds me of how our understanding of things, compared to what we will know one day in heaven, is dim and imperfect. Answers we seek for life’s puzzling circumstances elude us now, but will in heaven become crystal clear.
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

So true! And I agree with you, too, about your beautiful images. 🙂
Great images – I love reflections!
Thanks so much!
I love the intensity of the reflection in the vertical one. Stronger than the reality. Looking into the face of Jesus. So much lovelier, brighter. Illuminating love.
Great point! Thanks
Sue, these are wonderful sunset shots! I like the words you’ve drawn from the pictures.
Blessings ~ Wendy
I appreciate your feedback. You have phenomenal talent with both words and pictures. Blessings
Wonderful pictures. The first one showing that glorious cloud and the second one revealing the lovely red image in the water.
Thanks so much. I enjoy your photos, as well. Blessings on your day.

I’m all for the second image, which shows the drama of the reflection. Nicely done!
Thanks, Tina. I appreciate your feedback!
It’s like understanding something from another point of view, like how God may view something. He has all knowledge and wisdom and sees the end from the beginning. I like the water reflections in the vertical photo not seen in the first. I have only one sunset painting done portrait style.
Thanks. Yes, God sees all and will one day make all things clear for us. How wonderful that will be!
Beautifully captured sunset!!
Thanks very much and blessings.
Love the message you drew from the photos…perfect!
Thanks so much, Tami!
