Tag Archives: water reflections

So much of my time lately has been spent testing our swimming pool water to get things all chemically in balance that I decided to photograph it! 

It was quite breezy today and what first caught my attention were a few small orange flowers that had been blown into the pool and were being tossed about on the rippled water. However, it wasn’t too long before I began to notice some interesting reflections, so the floating flowers were abandoned as I began to randomly capture the reflected patterns and colors forming in the moving water.

At first I went for the obvious…poolside annual flowers making floral reflections. (Hey, I like flowers, what can I say?) The more I shot however, the more ‘loose’ my shooting became and my full-on right-brain process kicked into high gear.

"Reflections of Her" (Woman's Face Formed by Water Ripples & Reflections) Nikon D300, 650mm (200-400mm w/1.7x Teleconverter), F/9, 1/200s, -0.3EV, ISO 400

This image took me completely by surprise! Very little post-processing has been done here, folks. What you see is what the camera captured in that split millisecond. Amazing, right?

(I now get why Lynn likes photographing water reflections. They’re fun! 🙂 )

A few more really interesting reflections were captured today so it looks like I may have another series on my hands! 🙂

UPDATE: Okay, for those not seeing the woman’s face, does this help?
