"Two Friends Reflecting"

Two of my best friends had been standing with their back to me looking into a still section of the Connecticutt River in the autumn woodlands. After they moved away, I swore I could still see their reflection. I threw a rock in the water in front of where they were standing and took this photograph. They are hard to make out, but the woman on the left has long blonde hair below her waist and was wearing a tan jacket. The taller man to the right has long black hair in a pony tail and was wearing a green coat with a dark fur collar. They were both standing with arms wrapped around each other. The image is actually the reflection of the trees, leaves and sky in the rippled water.
