Water and Color

web water color

I find myself looking more for color in water these days. Whether its autumn foliage reflected in a local lake (see above) or a city scene captured thru a rain covered car window (see below) the reflective properties of water can really spice up an image.

When photographing trees reflected in a lake I tend to use the longest lens possible employing a wider depth of field so I can maintain sharpness throughout the Layers of color in the scene. The city shot was photographed with my iPhone while stopped at a light in Washington D.C, so that was taken using a fairly wide angle lens the the water drops on my window.

Want to see some more fall color? Please check out Happy Monday.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, Rob


  1. Hello Rob, a wonderful set of photos. The first and third look like fluid expressionist/impressionist paintings… Am particularly drawn to ‘Reflections’; it exactly describes ‘watery fire’ that somehow embodies my Piscean with the Chinese astrology fire element reading, an unlikely combination, or so I thought until I saw this!
    Am very flattered that you like my blog too – many thanks.


Please feel free to leave a reply. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughtful feedback, Rob
