Woodland pool
This image is best viewed and understood when it is enlarged – click onto it to see a larger version in a separate window.

Pool in the woodland at Brook Copse, on the lake’s northeast edge; 15 May 2015.

An abstract and, as often happens, things are not quite what they seem.  The shot’s most easily identifiable elements are the slender tree trunks over on the right, which appear to in their natural, near vertical orientations.  But the picture has been rotated, and these are in fact branches growing much near to the horizontal.  Far less well seen structures over on the left also appear to be growing vertically.

The outlines of the pool’s reflected highlights are another clue.  They are predominantly vertical, which adds to the shot’s other worldliness, but they should be horizontal.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 122mm; 400 ISO; rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Dazzling and yet dizzying. The higher-resolution helps, to be sure, but it takes a moderate leap of faith to be able to embrace how it all comes together in its rotated version. Whatever–I like the end result!

    Very relaxing, especially so if viewed when lying down. 🙂
    It’s yukky and raining here today, the window to your blog has a much better view. 😀

      Glad you’re lying down, always knew you do your photography flat out, ever use the ironing board as a tripod do you? And glad my mess, I mean blog, has banished your rainy blues.

      Two things to communicate. First, I doubt if even Fatman Photos will be proof against the gales forecast for tonight. And second, much to our great joy, we saw a Roe Deer, a tan female, in our neighbours’ garden this afternoon. We see Muntjac Deer regularly and they breed nearby, but we haven’t seen Roe here for years – maybe a decade in fact. A 🙂

        Lovely news about the deer, fingers crossed it enjoyed the visit too and will drop by again. 🙂
        I spent last night’s bad weather safely working away in my supermarket creating a storm of my own. The garden here seems to have survived in my absence too.
        After a short lull this morning, the winds appear to be back, the tree outside is dancing for all it’s worth and the birds have all gone into lockdown.
        I think a nice warm coffee in a large, huggable mug is in order, then I’ll go back and hide under the warm duvet until the alarm goes off later. 😀

          Well, here we are in “flaming June”, and the hot drink and warm duvet seem just the thing! And it must be difficult keeping your fingers crossed but its paid off!!! >>> the deer has spent a lot of time in our garden, seemingly unconcerned by our gawping – and having a wonderful time munching the new leaves on our two oak trees – absolutely wonderful to see! 🙂

    Beautiful golds. Super abstract, Adrian. One could get lost in it for a while.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes, there’s a lot in it, and that’s why I’m urging that it be viewed enlarged, as some things are clearer then – and I see what you mean about becoming lost in it. I’m glad you like it, M – thanks! A 🙂
