Once again…

it’s (almost always) about the water.

I can’t begin to tell you how many times I hear “I wish I had my camera with me!”

It’s been proven to me time and time again that you don’t go to where the images are; they come to you. When that happens your job is to see that there is a moment there and to then know how to capture it!

I was out shooting the almost full moon still high in the sky in the early morning hours around sunrise when this scene drew me in. It reminded me of some of the double exposures that I create in camera but this time it was all there in a single image.

If you’re passionate about photography two things will help you to improve: take your camera with you every day and then use it every day. In the next few weeks leading up to a new year I will be encouraging you to make a commitment to yourself and take a photo a day for a year. I promise you, it will change how you see the world.

  1. My goodness what a picture! Lily pad floating in the sky. For a minute I couldn’t take in what I was looking at. Pancakes getting tossed around? Brilliant!!

  2. I’m already among the converted. It’s a double challenge, of discipline as well as creativity, but so very enriching and worth it. I love your image…it seems to hybridize two of your favourite things: sky and water.
