Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections   53 comments


Thursday I went about the farm with my camera, determined to find something to take a photograph of. There wasn’t much of a photographic nature, everything wearing a coat of brown, left over from fall.

But I was determined and just started shooting away at everything that looked just a bit different. I walked around a farm pond and started taking photographs of reflections in the water, as it wasn’t otherwise very photogenic.

Imagine my surprise, when the next day the new photo challenge was Reflections. So, I uploaded my photographs to the computer and started looking through them and came across a number of these reflection ones.

And here they are. I hope you enjoy them.

Comments are welcome.

  1. I love people’s different perspectives on these challenges. My entry for this was a little boy fishing. Reflections of the mind I suppose. An older gentleman watching him fish and reflecting on his own childhood. I love your photos here. They’re brilliant.

  4. Beautiful! The third one is my favorite, the limbs of the trees look as if they’re trembling!

  6. Perfect for the challenge. Brown and leftover, maybe but still. Very photogenic. ;-)

    • I guess it all depends on what one is aiming at. My camera doesn’t have a good macro, so I’m not able to do much with that. So, generally it’s vista time for me. :)

      If I do anything resembling macro, I have to take a wider view, them do some trimming, which tends to cut down on the quality of the end result.

  7. Thank you, Cris’l. I shall give you my reflections on your “REFLECTIONS”. #1– Carol’s Too Happy to Be Blue, which is A Great Story of Life (the water) and Coming to Life (the land). #2–Please Reverse Me #4–Dangling Roots Illusion # 5–and then the Purple Monster just Poofed! #6–Where tangled cords got the idea.

    • What? No #3? Heehee.

      Interesting comments. I particularly liked #1. :)
      Reversing #2, I imagine, would make it look somewhat like a shaky fountain.
      The no #3—well, it;s hard to say about that one, being rather incognito.
      #4 interesting illusion.
      #5 quite imaginative, something I would probably never thought of. :)
      #6—I’d be interested in knowing what idea got got. :)
      Thanks, as usual. You’re always insightful…I think. :)

  10. Fascinating and inspiring captures… ;-)

  11. I love the shimmer of the water. You are right, Cris. Our ideas on reflections were very similar. Lovely photos. Rosemarie

    • Thanks. I appreciate your comments and visit. As one visitor commented, it will be interesting to see how things look when Spring eventually (hopefully) comes around. :)

  12. Cris, thanks for commenting on my blog (365 Thank You’s)! I love the pictures you posted on Reflection. I will look forward to seeing the same shots as the Spring unfolds. I can already imagine all the green and color you will see! Cheers!

    • It does get green (really green) here in NW Missouri, but most of the rain, probably like everywhere else, happens in the Spring. Rather dry in the summer.

  13. I love your series of reflection photos – and the most striking one is the very last one – to me at least – because it is so unusual – is it a puddle or a lake? well either way – nice post for the word reflections. :)

    • Thank you. The last photo was taken from a wooded hill overlooking a small stream that dries up every summer, but will sometimes get very big after a really hard rainstorm. :)

  14. Phenomenal photos, Cris!!! Wow! Every one of them I truly enjoyed! Thank you! xx Amy

  15. These are very good.. Thank you for visiting my photo booth!

    • Thank you. It’s sometimes amazing how some photographs turn out when you think you are just taking ordinary, average ones. Welcome. I like to spend 2-3 hours getting out every week after each new challenge. :)

  16. Very much like the centerpiece. Trees #3. Hits the theme and shows the essence of “treeness”.

  17. Nice job! The abstract close ups are great.

  18. Great reflections of trees! Trees are my obsession!

    • Thanks. While on my Thursday trip around the farm, I took a lot of closeup photos of mangly-looking trees that had fallen. I haven’t looked at them real close yet, but what I’ve seen of them, they’re nothing spectacular. I’m rather new to anything resembling abstract, although I am rather proud of the abstract-like shot of the trees and water. :)

  19. Wow, that’s awesome then…

  20. cannot beat water photo’s.. I was going to use some but opted for old B and W… ;)

    • There are reflections of all kinds. I hadn’t thought of that kind of reflection, but one other I visited and had a nice photo of her sitting on a rock with a lake behind her. Nice.

  21. Lovely Pics Chris. May I suggest something if you dont mind. I generally track the photos of the weekly photo challenge through the tags, which makes it easier for viewing rather from the dailypost page. But I guess yours are missing from the radar because of the tags. If you tag your wpc pics with the tag ‘weekly photo challenge’ a lot of people will be able to view it , because your photos are too good to miss :)

    • Thanks for you suggestion. Actually, I tag every weekly photo challenge with Weekly Photo Challenge 2014. I’ve never viewed photos by tags before. I just view them off of pingbacks on the Weekly Photo Challenge page. So, I’m not really sure what’s going on. I’m a bit dense, I’m afraid. :)
