Which way is up?

How do you define the perfect photograph? When you go through your shots at the end of the day, what grabs your attention and moves you at some deep level? Of course I don’t think there is ever just one thing that does it, but for me reflections are right up there at the top of the list, and when you are lucky enough to have all the conditions come together perfectly, you can end up with a thing of beauty.

On this particular fall day, my husband and I were out for a drive through the countryside with my parents, and we stopped to show them the old mill in Elora, Ontario. It was a cold but clear day, and the colours around us could not have been more intense. Both the sky and the water were a vivid blue, and the water was like glass. It was one of the most beautiful and peaceful scenes I have ever seen, and the reflection is so close to perfect that you can almost turn the picture upside and see no difference. I hope you feel the same sense of peace from this photo as I do.

  2. Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Beautiful Image.

    I have been trying for years to get a reflection image like this but the perfect conditions you describe are very elusive.

  4. Yes, so true. That’s why I have recently printed this shot, and it will enjoy a place of honor on my wall. Check back in tomorrow and I will post another shot from the same day. I think you may enjoy it even more! Thanks for checking out my blog.
