Salisbury, Connecticut. Hiking up to Bear Mountain across Paradise Lane we always stop at this little pool of water to check for interesting reflections. Today there was a nice group of frog egg clusters. Looks like they beamed down from another planet.

West of Gaylordsville, Connecticut. We hiked from Bull’s Bridge south on the Appalachian trail over Ten Mile Mountain (ugh) and this small swamp/pond was right next to Rt. 55 on the southern end of our hike. I had the bright idea to get some ripples going by tossing a stick in and at one point [...]
Flickr member Eric Hanson has taken a great window display and reflection in Bellevue, Washington with his Sony RX100.
West Cornwall, Connecticut. We hiked up to Pine Swamp yet again in light snowfall. It’s one of our favorite short hikes on the Appalachian Trail. The falling snow pretty much wrecked every shot I got except this one. I did clean up some of the bigger flakes that were in this shot and I almost [...]
Flickr member Toni F. Mestres (AKA Robo F.) has taken a wonderful reflection shot in Barcelona, Spain with his Nikon Coolpix 7000.
Flickr member berrberr2012 has used a Sony RX100 o capture this excellent window reflection in Lyon, France.
Flickr member sorakaze.so has caught some lotus leaves with a great reflection and even with a bit of sun flare made this image work well.
Thayer Brook, Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Kent, Connecticut. Dave and I took a quick hike south on the AT to shoot ice on this brook. I used both the G15 and RX100 and got a few keepers from each. These are ice drippings (stalagmites) under a waterfall and while it was tough to shoot these [...]
Flickr member Jeff Krol has posted a wonderfully complex reflection image taken with a Sony RX100 in the Hague, Netherlands.
Salisbury, Connecticut. A quick hike up Bear Mountain in snow and fog. Not much to shoot except a nice reflection of snow in this little pool on one of the various creeks we cross.
Washington, Connecticut. The small grotto on Bee Brook in Steep Rock’s Macricostas Preserve always has interesting reflections, ice, and other things to photograph.
Schaghticoke Ridge on the Appalachian Trail south of Kent, Connecticut. Dave and I hiked south on the AT with this small stream (Thayer Brook) as our destination. I shot a lot of ice but these two images of the reflection of three trees in the brook caught my eye. This one is shot at f/1.8 [...]
Flickr member Stefano Mirabella has captured a great urban reflection in a car window.
My longtime flickr contact Mr Inky has posted a fantastic monochrome reflection of Central Park, New York shot with a Ricoh GRD 2 point and shoot camera.
Flickr member Jekurantodistaja has posted a wonderful street reflection in Helsinki, Finland taken with the Sony RX100.
Japanese Garden, Van Nuys, California. We love this garden for a number of reasons. It’s an authentic Japanese garden with all the trimmings (so to speak) and it’s part of a city sewage treatment plant so the water in the various ponds is loaded with great food for fish and birds. Here it is in [...]
Flickr member frischauge has shot a fascinating reflection in Germany with the Sony RX100.
New York, Connecticut border south of Kent, Connecticut. Dave and I hiked from Bull’s Bridge north along the Appalachian Trail along Schaghticoke Ridge with this small stream as our destination. The trail was quite slippery and both of us were feeling our age but were too proud (and lazy) to put on microspikes which would [...]
Mt. Everett Reservation, Massachusetts. On the way up to Mt. Everett on snowshoes we stopped and took a few shots of Guilder Pond. We snowshoed around it and got some more nice images but this one was the best I got that day. I continue to be both frustrated and amazed with the Sony RX100: [...]
West Cornwall, Connecticut. Dave and I returned to the Pine Swamp beaver ecosystem along the Appalachian Trail toward the end of the day to see if the lower light might make things more interesting and it certainly did. I look for textural juxtapositions and this area upstream of the main pond was calm and glassy [...]
