Reflecting on reflections

I’m still traveling, a long way away from my film chemicals and scanner. Still going digital.

I went for a walk yesterday with my Nikkor S 1.4 lens on my Nikon D5000. The D5000 was a budget model from nikon. It has a very good sensor and can produce good shots, but it has a fairly dim, small screen, and looking through the viewfinder isn’t much better. It is very tricky to use with a fast lens, focusing through live view. So probably five percent of the shots I took were successes.

We were walking along the harbour in the South Australian town of Robe, famed for its crayfish and seafood. In the middle of a long South Australian afternoon, the reflections of the fishing boats in the harbour waters were exquisite.

I usually have something to say in these posts…

So I’ll just make a couple of observations…

The surface of the water is already a camera…

Robe harbour 3

And Robe Harbour is a beautiful subject.

That’s all. More of the f1.4 / Robe harbour combo next time when I post some boat photos from the same shoot.

Until then, maybe you can reflect on reflections. What do you like about photographing reflections? Will you post a link to your favourite photoreflection?

    i think i like what the reflection shows of the object. the distortions. the magic of the other side.

    i take many many photos of reflections that never post because they are too many.
    I cant decide which ones I like more, i will put the links to three. I think.
