I'm not sure if this one qualifies. I was visiting a grist mill on Cape Code and took a few pictures. There was a tiger lily all alone by the edge of the pond and I snapped a picture of it. Later when reviewing my pictures, I saw the sky and was surprised that it was not the sky but it's reflection in the pond. Not as dramatic as some of the other reflections posted for this challenge but it's all I have right now. Hopefully I'll get something better this weekend.

I think it more than meets the challenge. At first glance I saw the sky in the background and had no idea the light was coming from the surface of a pond. It takes some looking to see the reflection of the leaves and realize you're really seeing a reflection.

Wow, that water must have been still as could be. I, too, thought you had photographed the flower from underneath and gotten the sky.

Nice image.

Unusual lighting if you consider that is the sky we are looking at. As it is thats a great shot. Is it right for this challenge? You bet it is.
