Shock of Blue

I absolutely love pools of water in fields and the unusual shock of colour they can provide. I love driving through the prairies on a clear day and seeing shots of blue on the ground- the reflections are always more intense than the actual sky. It is especially pleasing to me in the spring (not our present white spring) when the bleached blonde stubble in the fields accentuate this effect.
