One of my favorite things to photograph when I’m on a hike is reflections of trees in the water. I love the painterly quality, the way the reflection mixes with the bottom of the pond, and the wavy shapes that ripples in the water make.
On a recent hike at the Welsh Mountain Preserve, I found these small pools, they might be vernal pools, but I’m not sure. I had a lot of fun taking photos of the reflections in the water. I especially like where you can see both the reflected trees and the bottom of the pond. The painterly quality of the photos still delights me every time I look at them.
On a recent city walk I focused my attention, and my camera, at windows. I love how you can see both what’s behind the window and what it is reflecting. They sort of look like double exposures. Plus, it’s the closest I’ll ever get to posting a selfie.
