The word glass has many definitions around the world, yet, its basic form, glass is a non-crystalline solid with enormously other uses.

For me, the word glass immediately brings to mind my attempts to photograph a sunrise or sunset reflecting on a body of water that is smooth as glass.

Although I should use the word mirror, I chose glass, because of the smooth texture, and clearness glass provides when all of its impurities are removed.

For centuries to present day, craftsmen engineers and designers use glass’s versatility in design, adding colors and in many different shapes.

The engineering advances of glass for telescopes, windowpanes, and the engineering marvels of glass skyscrapers along with the screen I view to type this posting, which is smooth as glass.

    1. Thank you Martha. Watch for the next WordPress daily word posting, I think you will enjoy its humor. 🙂

  2. Beautiful shot. Did you wait for days for the right conditions or did you happen on the spot by accident?

    1. That was taken behind my RV camper parked next to the lake at the Wilderness Presidential Campgrounds in Spotsylvania VA. To capture most of the photos I have taken was waking to enjoy the sunrise. 🙂
