A second look at the trees reflected in the lake in the Priddy Mineries Reserve.  Rather than viewing them at an angle along the lake’s shore as I did in the previous image (3, below), I’m using a longer telephoto here to look straight at them from the other side of the lake, and this version omits the bright blue reflection of the clear sky.

Once again, the rising sun is lighting up the rising ground behind the lake shore, and the reflection of this colouration is seen in the shot’s foreground.  Just above the centre of the shot is the lower ground along the lake’s shore, which has yet to be illuminated by the sun, and which is receiving its light from the clear blue sky.  The reflection in the lake of this band of colour is seen just below the image’s centre.

Context from this shoot is here: 3Other photos are here: 1 2  .

Click onto the image to open another version in a separate window, and click onto that image to further enlarge it – recommended.

Technique: X-T2 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Lightroom, using the Provia/Standard film simulation; Priddy Mineries Reserve, on the Mendip Hills, Somerset; 16 Feb 2018.


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.

    The lighter colour around the outside gives the image a vignette look. Very nice, Adrian.

    This looks great Adrian, love the point of view.

    I like both – they’re good companions to one another. Maybe though, I prefer this one, because it’s more abstract, and I love that. It’s completely real at the same time – perfect. The toning is really, really nice – the little streaks in the water just barely showing, and the purple hazy stuff feeling like puffy clouds. Love it Adrian!

      Lynn, thank you very much! BTW the Blurb book is here, one day before the deadline. I’ve found three minor mistakes that I made, and I think Blurb’s printing and colour reproduction is their best yet. A 🙂


  4. Magical. The light. The reflection. Perfect!

    Looks like a network of blood vessels, so necessary for life to flourish. Good work.


  6. Well framed; starts to feel like a charcoal drawing.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
