Water Ripples and Reflections

Water and the way it reflects and bends light, while constantly moving, has always fascinated me. Its unique characteristics often only become apparent when it’s captured in a photograph. It then can take on painterly qualities reminiscent of the works of artists such as Jackson Pollock

Zooming in closer reveals a whole microcosm of colours and structures, that are truly amazing. It’s fun to experiment with varying shutter speeds – the results are always unique and completely unpredictable. This is one of the few circumstances where a tripod isn’t necessary – even had-held shots with longer exposure times can yield beautiful images.
