Mystic River Reflection

Mystic, CT

There were just enough ripples in the water to keep this image from being a perfect reflection.  I do like the painterly effect of the reflection though.  This is the view looking north along the Mystic River.  The ship's masts, nicely reflected on the right side of the image, are the newly installed masts of the Charles W Morgan,  the last remaining wooden whale ship.  The Morgan is nearing the completion of a 5 year restoration project which will culminate this summer when she embarks on her 38th, and final voyage. You can find out more about this voyage here. For many other great reflections, please visit Weekend Reflections.  Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

  4. I would love to visit your part of the country someday. This photo is gorgeous. Some of my roots go back to Connecticut. I am related to Lt. Samuel Camp from Milford (1645 - 1708).

  9. It's a study in silver tones. I like the blurred reflection, it ties in with the subtlety of the whole.
