"When we look at a rock, what we are seeing is not the rock, but the effect of the rock upon us."
I found myself looking for reflections that were odd. It didn't start out that way.
I had no intentions of looking for anything specific when I took Charlie for our hike in the forest yesterday.
However, my feet found their way to the valley and the creek where I could find some water.
I just became fascinated with the little creek and all of the neat reflections I found. I hadn't hiked this area most of the summer.
I kept finding interesting perspectives.
This is Rich's favorite shot from my walk, he loves this one and calls it The Floaty Rock.
He usually doesn't take much interest in what I discover. But he really liked this one.
It isn't even in perfect focus, but I'll keep it anyway. The odd part was the plant reflection. It looks out of place and strange. Enough to make a person question their eyes.
In another spot, as I got ready to take a reflection shot, a slight breeze rippled the water and it looked like the water was hand painted.
I had a few good Up/Down shots that turned out. Here is one that feels out of balance. The photo looks upside down but I included the edge of the tiny pond and Charlie [out of focus].
If I had been standing in any other place, it would have been evident that the birch was just in front of a tall oak. But from a distance it looked pretty strange.
