Last summer, I spent some time with my family in Germany. My parents got a small pond in the garden which is primarily for plants, not animals. This summer two frogs and tiny black salamanders found refuge there, swimming, hiding and sitting on the small rocks among the plants. I took some snapshots and close-ups. Here are the latter first.

The light reflection on the water was influenced by the red sunscreen above the terrace beside the pond. For me colour always rules!

So the photographs are resized, but the colours are only slightly more saturated by colors\levels\input levels (Pentax X5 & Gimp) and have not been manipulated digitally furthermore.
