A Reflective Landscape
I’m musing on landscapes over at Mortal Muses today. While out at a nearby nature area with a dear friend and fellow photographer, I came upon these still-barren trees reflected in a small lake. I wanted to get closer, but alas a chain link fence prevented my desire. Still, I wanted that shot. So I took my time, framing carefully, getting between those diamond metal shapes of fenceline. And I clicked the shutter. At first, the blurry lines of the chain link annoyed me in this photograph, but the more I look at it, the more I think they add to the charm and truth of this landscape. Sometimes landscapes are wide open spaces, free for us to roam. Other times, the landscape is just beyond reach, as in this image.
Blocked or open, landscapes do make for gorgeous scenery for us to capture in our minds and with our cameras.
