Tree reflections

Ellison park is often flooded during heavy rain weather, and after Sandy, indeed it has flooded again. You can see on the lower right side of the image the edge of the park road where it descends below the surface.

The two trees are reflected providing nearly perfect inverted images. I suppose it is not healthy for trees to be flooded like this, but it will not last long.

As a side note, I have succeeded in posting 19 pictures in the month of October, a record for me. Not sure why that is, and certainly no reason for celebration, but I like that I have been able to capture pictures in a nearly daily cadence.  Perhaps my standards have gotten lower... these last two posts are pretty gloomy, but we photograph what we find, and gloom and rain has the theme of the week.


  1. John - you know you're getting "serious" when suddenly realize that you are in a "daily cadence", picture making wise ...

    "You learn to see by practice. ... The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can't be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.~ Eliot Porter

    PS - IMO, your "standards" aren't getting lower, rather, your vision and seeing (which have nothing to do with your eyes) are climbing up the "standards" ladder.

  2. If anything, your standards are higher. At least it's evidenced by this photo, which is superb.

  3. I agree with Ken this photo is a very nice image.
