J Bar June 19, 2010 at 6:16 pm great shot John McDevitt June 20, 2010 at 10:59 am I do like this reflection shot. Your rainbow shot is outstanding and deserving of an honored place on your wall. ann, new zealand June 22, 2010 at 10:37 am This is just fantastic. Where were you to get a shallow place to take this photo. I go to Western Springs a lot. paul (Post author) June 22, 2010 at 4:11 pm Thanks for your comments, Ann. This was taken from the bridge (more or less where the marker is on the map, facing towards the short arm of the lake). There are one or two rocks which are submerged and some of the birds use them for resting/preening.
