Bridge Reflection
Lens: Pentax DA 18-135 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Algonquin Park, Ontario,Canada ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/25s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: tessfully, 03-22-2012, 07:53 PM

We have been blessed with summer-like temps during a month that is often fraught with snowstorms and below freezing temperatures. So while worrying about Climate Change we headed out in the canoe for a paddle on an ice-free creek. I have a series to put together, but for now wanted to share this bridge shot. We paddled back to the car as the sun was dropping behind the horizon. As we passed the bridge I could not believe my eyes and made Norman back-paddle so I could take this...









thank you for looking

Tess, this is one great reflection, you can even see the bottom of the bridge in the water, never saw one like that. Love it and I think I saw a moose in this same location last year that Norm took a photo of?

I can see myself walking by this and not noticing it. I think my brain just automagically edits things like this out, especially when I am in nature. Great eye, composition, and job on this. I love the contrast in textures on this going from the smoothness of the water, the rocks on the bank, to the foliage in the trees. Also the image is kind of it's own frame. My eye goes right to the center and makes me want to explore is whatever is beyond the bend.

Thank you Bob! I'll ask Norman about the moose. I think it might have been another bridge.

thank you so much for your very kind response metaglypto! wow... I am glad it speaks to you that way. I was unsure of the composition and have another shot that kind of looks down the road a bit, but looses the crisp reflection... so happy to read your comments. thank you!

Wow - just beautiful! Great timing also with the water being so still.

With the new thread running about the 18-135 lens and the great photos included (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/179869-da-18-1...at-can-do.html), I've been thinking of buying this lens to replace my 16-45. Your fantastic photo here is sure helping to push my decision.

Thanks for sharing!
