Reflecting On Reflections. September 16, 2012

Reflections in water are a favorite subject of many landscape photographers, partly because they can be fun and interesting, and partly because they’re there when actual landscape photography is less than interesting.

As an example of both rationalizations, here’s a shot from the Chesterfield Gorge on the Westfield river in Massachusetts:

It has a nicely reflexive geometry, but has neither the saturation of a real-world moment nor the contrast of a great black and white photo, so I’m at a loss as to what to do with it other than to throw it out there as a Potential Thing lost in the miasma of mediocrity. I probably ought to have more pride than to publish it at all, but then, we all have visions which go unfulfilled despite our best efforts. This is one of mine, and I welcome your input as to how it could amount to anything or why it never will.

I like it. It’s a certain view and reflection of the low water levels and change from normal that we have been experiencing hereabouts. Good peaches and lots of acorns, harbingers of a normal winter and some snow? Hard telling, not knowing.

LB, welcome, and I’ll go with that – great peaches this year, obscenely juicy. If that portends a real winter, I’m psyched – I have a new-ish pair of snow shoes and would love to properly christen them!

Yeah, and the business acumen of a pencil seller! 🙂

Still, thanks for the kind words, they’re why I keep on going!
