Great shot JJ excellent reflection. Was the buoy close to the shore or where you in a boat to take the photo. I'm trying to work out how there are no ripples on the surface.

what an intense blue... there's something very pleasing about this shot: its symmetry but not-quite symmetry, and simplicity of composition.

Hook me up for the night to this mooring ball. Because if it is this beautiful just seeing the water, I can only image what the rest of the scenery is like.

The juxtaposition of colours here along with the framing that forces you to perceive the object and its reflection as almost as one object are what make this shot really stand out.
