Reflections have always had a special place in my photographic images. I enjoy their inherent symmetry and balance. Whether it is a mountain lake or a reflection in a stream, I enjoy the colorful abstractions that are created when the subjects are reflected. When the sun is not directly shining on the water and is still shining on the subject being reflected, the images created are of better quality. I often use a graduated neutral density filter to accomodate the differences in the amount of light on the water and on the subject. It is the balance of the image that makes for a quality photograph.
