Dgrin mini-challenge #77: Welcome to Round #77 of the Dgrin mini-Challenges. This challenge is open to any Dgrin member. It will run from Sunday, May 31, 08:00am, EST time (GMT -5) to June 17th, 08:00am, EST time (GMT -5).

The topic ready for your interpretation: Reflections & Refractions

I spent alot of time this week at the beach and in the Carolina swamps admiring natures best examples of reflection and refraction. When I came back and found out that my photo of the reflection in my grandfather's sunglasses won the last mini challenge... I thought this was best suited for the next contest.

Your Judges:
MissB ...(winner of #76 and still amazed that I actually won a contest!)
Catherine (photography friend)

Im not sure If I left anything out... I didn't want to delay the challenge any further than I already have... ADMIN please add what you think is missing.... here are a few examples from this weeks inspiration.

    Oh Ron, really now, couldn't you have at least left the rest of us hopeful to at least have a chance for a day or two before you post?

    I have a feeling this challenge is going to generate some great entries, and it makes me want to take some appropriate shots. Here's one for now.
