A Minimalist’s Reflection

Simple shot today really.  Have been spending more and more time lately searching out puddles and reflections to see what kind of interesting shots I could come up with.  There’s no question that the inspiration that I used to start this photo expedition came from the king of reflections, Mike Olbinski.  Ever since his storm sunset reflection titled Seventh Heaven, it opened up my eyes to new possibilities and unique shots.

Today’s shot is a simple sky reflection in the middle of a country road.  Really like the blues and soft clouds of this shot.

  4. It’s almost like it’s minimalist day. The color you bring out in the reflection is really awesome. It feels like a painting. This shows how much you’re training your eyes to notice your surroundings. I need to do that
