Weekend reflections - Rockport shots

I'm so excited to have some new shots to share for Weekend Reflections. We took a recent mini vacation to Rockport Texas and I was able to capture some fun shots from the balcony of our rental condo. I'm still getting used to this camera but I was fairly happy with the results. I did discover that it does not care much for low light. Guess I'll have to leave those shots to hubby and his "fancy pants" camera lol. Make sure to visit James at Newtown Area Photo to see some really beautiful, creative reflection photographs.

Resident blue heron who came to feed every morning. Their camo is so good that you can see him better in the reflection than on land!
Pretty palms, gazebo and clouds

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to visit James and see some beautiful photography!

Your photos are tempting me to go to the beach, except I can only catch the sunset! I found peace and tranquility in your shots! Congratulations on the nice pictures!
