A great photo and reflection. I'm trying to figure out what the reflection is to the left of the duck. Perhaps a fence or gate? Thank you for joining in!

@James: If you click on the link to "outfall" you will see that they are ripples in the water reflecting sunlight.

This is a wonderful photo! Uncluttered and simple. Beautiful.
