Take a few steps back and than look:
Eucalyptus trees reflection over the rippled water surface, taken on a bright morning along the Yarkon river.
Some Eucalyptus trees grow up to 45m high, and brought to Israel by the Australian army in 1918 with General Allenby British troops, and planted over many locations in the country on known marshlands and rivers.

Great shot with beautifull reflections, you're right it looks better from a distance, well done.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colors of the tree on the water. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

From your thumbnail I thought the image was an aerial view of land and rivers. Pleasant surprise to discover your Nature's mirror of Eucalyptus wavering in the blue water.
I am a big fan of Eucalyptus trees since growing up in Whittier, Calif, our parks had many of these guys. And now I have them in my yard and enjoy not only their appearance but also their fragrances and attraction to birds. They are not native to California but as immigrants do very well in our environment.

Looks more like an abstract painting than a photograph, I like it. Sometimes we view the world in a distorted way. Well done, tfs.

carlo62 (49325) 2013-12-28 11:16
non c'è che dire, veramente originale e piacevole questo riflesso, hai avuto buon occhio nell'accorgerti di questo particolare.
Le deformazioni dell'albero creano dei bei disegni sullo sfondo blu del cielo.
ourania (46410) 2013-12-28 11:26
a beautiful reflection, with colours and motion all over the frame. I like very much this description, that is playful and faithful at the same time. There's an agreeable vibrancy, the light and the colours are bright and cheerful. Congratulations and thank you for this photo as well as for the impressive work you've done on TE! Your description of your city, your travels, pictures, notes and comments mean a lot to me and to a lot of other members, I'm sure!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
macjake (68543) 2013-12-28 12:30
hmm....i don't really recall seeing very many reflections of trees or branches, especially as the full photo.
but it looks good, and there's a cool wiggle and wobble of the subjects.
Sonata11 (33863) 2013-12-28 20:07
very beautiful reflection and beautiful colors. I love it. Perfectly well done. Best regards and thank you, Barbara

This is a beautiful painting by the artist Yarkon River and you have recorded it very skillfully. Well seen and rendered!
PS. Congratulations on your millennial entry.
clic (17129) 2013-12-29 17:21
Why do I see in those fabulous reflexions a strong reference to a natural Christnas tree adorned of blue glass ornaments that smells eucalyptus instead of fir tree?!!
No news yet of the lady kayakist?!!
shevchenko (20548) 2013-12-29 18:57
Fantastic reflection, good contrast of color, good discovery and good frame to shot it, well done.
Happy New Year 2014
delpeoples (58362) 2013-12-30 3:24
Hi dear Ike
Looking at this lovely tree reflection always makes me think of home. The soft colours and blue sky are unmistakable and yet this Aussie tree ends up in Israel, brought here by our troops. A very artistic, original composition. I love the distorted reflections. Happy New Year to you dear friend and happy 1000th photo here on TE, what an achievement.
ChrisJ (114799) 2013-12-31 6:37
You are making me homesick! The eucalyptus trees are native to Australia but are popular all around the world. I have also seen them in Vietnam, Thailand and Greece. Effective tight framing here with good sharpness and superb reflections. A safe and happy New Year to you and you family!
adramad (46062) 2013-12-31 9:40
Wonderful shapes and colors, these beautiful reflections that create a single image, with a fantastic graphics and an appearance like a modern painting.
Beautiful color range of these natural tones.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
My wishes for you and also for your family, a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2014.
Best wishes, my friend.
Waylim (25502) 2013-12-31 12:03
Beautiful reflection and very unique focusing on the water only. I can amost feel it move. Very nice abstract with good color and light.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-01-03 11:40

Beautiful reflections well captured! Congratulations for your 1000 photos here!
jmdias (65028) 2014-01-06 15:31
you have done many images with this theme, but I guess this is your best one. fantastic colors and distorted shapes. I liked the abstract result you got here.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-01-08 11:38
though a bit late, I want to congratulate you for the reached milestone of 1000 published photos.
And I like this creative composition, where you have played skilfully with the abstract effect of the reflections of the tree on the water, in a powerful and colorful image.
A great work.
I wish you a happy and healthy New Year!
Kielia (24077) 2014-01-09 8:19
this image is a delight for everyone who loves reflections!
You are presenting a fine impression of these fascinating trees. And it is of course due to the wonderful colors and light also a pleasure for the aesthete. Excellent photo work!

an artistic reflection shot from
Eucalyptus trees over the rippled
have a nice week end
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-01-16 10:37
Trust you are well, you know I can not resist a reflection. Great one here and one of my favourite tree Eucalyptus,(I used to suck the leaves when I was boy so my mother did nor smell I had been smoking, they even grow well in England).
Love the colours and the distorted grey bark. Well managed and presented.
gildasjan (43648) 2014-01-22 10:14
J'aime beaucoup cette image,elle est presque surréaliste.Les raies de ces reflets sont très esthétiques.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2014-03-02 19:44
Ike, this is the most original and creative reflection that I have ever seen!!
I love eucalyptus trees but I have never seen them through such an attractive point of view!!
fritzi007 (10845) 2014-03-23 16:03

(you had in Portofino the better weather)
Wish you a nice week
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-10-23 8:46
You have well captured not only the reflection of Eucalyptus trees but deep blue sky also, a beautiful graphic design created on the vibrating water surface to make a wonderful composition with well detailing.
berek (50504) 2014-11-25 19:58
Good morning Ike,

papagolf21 (102506) 2015-02-11 11:33
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Les reflets sur l'eau sont une véritable composition picturale du meilleur effet.
Le résultat est stupéfiant.
Très bonne soirée.
Curious_Eye (1320) 2015-03-18 1:46
A fascinating reflection of the gum tree. Great effect with the ripples creating a blur in some areas, whereas other parts of the reflection retaining clarity. Strong light works well here. Congratulations, I really like this image!
All the best,

Hello Ike! Very sophisticated art work. Amazing colours. Fine contrast. Superb effect. Splendid work. Well done!
Noel_Byrne (31466) 2015-11-21 10:38
This is like a photo of a dream the way the colors blend and fuse together is beautiful and so unusual. The tone of blue in particular from the sky, it seems almost electric, or perhaps that s the effect of it being amongst the subtle greens. Beautifully seen.
