Just a few photos which alternate between water reflections and night scenes.
These landscapes of water and reflection have become an obsession.

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
~ Steve Martin
When despair for the world grows in me, and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be -- I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
~ Wendell Berry
Being in the woods at night is a beautiful thing.
~ Hugo Weaving
I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.
~ Edward Steichen
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. ~ Vincent Van Gogh
In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.

~ Raymond Chandler
Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.
To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.
~ Walt Whitman
A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long.
~ e. e. cummings
What a nice night for an evening.
~ Steven Wright
