Over at the 'Our Beautiful Word' blog, this week's theme is MIRRORING. I thought this was a really fun prompt, and was looking forward to taking some photograph yesterday. Hah! It was very windy indeed, and there wasn't a mirror like surface to be had on any bit of water, lol. Not during the day today either, but it calmed right down around 7 this evening, so my darling husband drove me down to the lake in Cuzy so that I could jump out of the car whenever I saw I spot I liked and take a quick pic.

First, I tried a couple of pics on one side of the lake -

Had to be really quick to get this one, the van was driving fast! -

But I got much more excited once we drove round the lake and I was able to take pics of the other side -

It looked so pretty!

Why don't you have a look around your home or town and see whether you can spot any mirroring? Link your pics HERE so that we can all drool over them.

I have loads of beautiful brocante finds to photograph. I tried to make a start today. On the antique garments I had bought. I asked my DH to bring my beautiful mademoiselle down into the garden so that I could use her to show the clothes. Of course, as soon as I started, the wind came up and it took me ages to get any shots at all. A few choice words may have floated down to the valley as well, lol. But it was great to see the French tea towels I had managed to find, fluttering in the stiff breeze. I'll post those pics tomorrow hopefully.

For now, toodlepip, and thank you so much for visiting. xxx

Oh these photos are absolutely stunning of the French countryside so close to your home. I remember them from your walk you did a few days ago and loved them then. The mirroring effect Liz
is so beautiful with and without a breeze!
Anything mirroring effect from my garden here pales into insigificence
after your glorious photos apart from my pet goldfish which got quite a fright when I tried to take a photo mirroring an autumnal Pear tree in their huge pot!
Hope you are doing well and look forward to seeing your new brocante purchases blowing in the wind!
Hugs from here,
