    1. Thanks Sreejith. That’s exactly the look I was going for, though without the use of post processing to achieve it. Reflections on the water are perfect for this.

      1. Thank you both! I was very pleased with how these came out. The day most of these were made, I’m pretty sure I was the only person in New Hampshires White Mountains with his camera aimed at the water the entire day. Which, considering it was Columbus Day weekend, the busiest leaf peeping weekend in NH, must have seemed rather odd to a lot of the visiting tourists.

        Odd enough in fact that I was asked no less than half a dozen times if I was photographing fish, or if there are fish in there. πŸ˜€

                  1. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend any of the Canon 70-200s.

                    The non-IS F4 version is very sharp, light as a toy, and can be had for about $500-$550 used. Which is a hell of a bargain considering how good it is.

                    The F4 IS version, which I currently own, can be had for less than $1,000 used, is crazy sharp, with awesome Image Stabilization. Traded a non-IS F2.8 70-200 for it. The F2.8 was heavy, and even though I almost never used it, I couldn’t bring myself to leave it out of my backpack. I buy pretty much all of my bodies and lenses used, saved a ton doing it too.

  1. Both your reflection posts are so so pretty, I couldn’t decide which one to comment on….then went for this one cause I’m a sucker for a bit of impressionist abstraction.
    Just gorgeous stuff, Jeff!

  2. Great to see all these images again and in a Gallery. Second time around and I think I love them even more now. Thank you Jeff

    1. Thank you Lee! These do seem to be a popular series of images, which has inspired me to always be on the lookout for reflections and abstracts. I’ll certainly be focusing an entire day on them again this coming autumn.

  3. You’re like an impressionist photographer! So gorgeous, Jeff. So glad you stopped by my blog again so I could catch up on yours. Your work is such an inspiration. … πŸ™‚

  4. I saw part II first and thought the photos were beautiful, but then I saw part I and thought they were even better. I like the removal of the ‘real’ part of the image, leaving only the wavery, watery ripples of reflection. (BTW I love the loon in your header image! I haven’t seen one in 30-odd years, since I lived in northern Canada. I remember their haunting cry echoing over a still lake at twilight.)

    1. Thank you very, very much Elizabeth! I had a great time making all of those abstracts. I won’t say I got tired of “normal” shots of all the great fall color we get here in New Hampshire, but I was really on a mission to do something different.

      Thanks again for both the compliment on the header, and telling me which image you were complimenting (the header images is on a random loop). I love that call. I live on a lake and we have had a nesting pair here every year since I’ve lived here, and I’m sure long before that, and I look forward to their return, and that call, every spring.
