I love photographing water. Often it is necessary to get wet, not an unpleasant thing much of the year. But the rocks in our Vermont streams are typically slippery, and I’m now old enough I fear more for my bones than for my camera!
Thankfully my good friend Rob discovered LLBean’s “Streamside Cleats.” While they don’t make me invincible, they do make life safer and less worrisome when in the water like we were this week on the upper reaches of the North Branch of the Winooski.
Exactly what reflections in the water I see depends in large part on exactly where I am in relation to what is being reflected. Moving slightly in any direction can make so much difference in the photograph—not that it is hard to go wrong most of the time! Here are two, both beautiful, with just a bit of change of perspective between them:
Being able to get right out where I need to be allows me to see some fabulous reflections, even with Fall foliage only just beginning.
