TREE REFLECTION

In April two years ago we went to stay just outside Christchurch whilst attending a family wedding and rented a cottage for the weekend. The grounds of the estate where we stayed had a small river running through and this was a fine reflection I managed to shoot during an evening walk.

You could have been forgiven for titling this THE Reflection Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Fred, it's obvious it's a tree, I must have had an off day.
This is good!!! Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
Fantastic Brian! This should've won something!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. I haven't yet entered this in a club competition, other shots seem to overtake it.

Unusual to see just the reflection and not the original - very nice, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, I see quite a lot of reflections done this way, it is difficult to actually come up with something new with reflections.

With this kind of reflection you don't even need the real thing!

BTW, we thought of you yesterday while watching the Jubilee Pageant on the Thames, seeing the steam train on the bridge! smile
Brian Walbey: I thought that also Ginnie. Yes we did get that quick glimpse of the locomotive but what happened to it after that I don't know. In all honesty I felt, as did a lot of others going by our national media today, that the BBC's coverage was pretty abysmal and not up to their normal standard for royal occasions, too much concentration on "Z list" celebrities and not enough of the parade sadly.
I love shots like this, Brian. The world seems upside down.
Brian Walbey: I like reflections where if they are turned upside down they still look like the actual thing being reflected.
Superb capture Brian such detail in the reflection.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.

This is a great reflection...I reckon that'll get you a prize when there is a comp for reflections, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Well it is a fine reflection and you were fortunate to have such still water Brian.
Brian Walbey: I was indeed Chad, thanks for your comment.

A very fine reflection Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ingrid.
This could rival a mirror reflection, Brian. Well done!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Beverly.
very beautiful Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan.
What a beautifully still surface - great reflection!
Brian Walbey: I was very lucky to get this Tom, a fine still April evening.
Blimey Brian ... I've got just such a similar shot as this taken at Calke Abbey not a week ago. Have to wait a few weeks before I post mine.
Brian Walbey: I look forward to your Calke reflection Richard, I posted some a while back and know how lovely reflections on the lake there can be.
A wonderful reflection shot indeed Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.

The trees look like lace. This is absolute fabulous.....
This must have been a wonderful place to be.
Brian Walbey: It is at the private estate on which we rented a bungalow for the weekend when we came down to Christchurch for a family wedding two years ago.

This is lovely. The stillness in the water makes a perfect mirror.
Brian Walbey: It is a small tributary off a larger river and I guess is fairly still all the time.
Good detailed reflection, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
love the reflections in the stillw aters
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
