My photography has taught me that natural beauty can be found even in places where you might not think to look. It’s remarkable what’s hiding in plain view -- on the surface of lakes and rivers and at seaports. The colors are magnificent; the variety is endless. It is a common photographic technique to frame a landscape scene near a body of water to allow the water’s reflection to enhance the scene’s effect. The water serves as a prop to capture the postcard shot of a sunset or a city’s beautiful buildings or neighborhoods. What I came to appreciate instead was the beauty of the water itself – the reflections were colorful and mysterious on their own. In my world, then, water is not a prop. For me, it’s been the main event. The beauty of water reflections is more about form and color than about the physical objects they reflect. They typically resemble abstract paintings. I’ve also noticed how dynamic these images can be -- a slight breeze across the water’s surface changes the image continually so that each frame is unique, even if I haven’t moved my camera at all. After sunset, streetlights can also create alluring nocturnal water reflections.
