Earlier this month while relaxing by the water of Horseshoe Lake near Parry Sound, Ontario I took notice of the patterns created by the gentle, undulating surface of the lake. The weather conditions at the time was mostly sunny with numerous puffy white, cotton clouds in the sky. In the sections of water that were cast in shade, the reflected sky and clouds were creating ever-changing patterns of white and blue. Using my Nikon D500 and Nikkor 200-500mm VR Lens I zoomed in on different sections of the water to record several images of these patterns as they evolved. I found it best to set the Nikon D500 to record the images at 10 frames per second so I would not miss any of the subtle changes in the patterns. After creating a rather ridiculous number of these images I narrowed down the keepers to these three images. Each of the images in this post are straight out of the camera with only minor adjustments to contrast and some cloning of debris floating on the surface of the water.

One of my first planned stops on my recent fall colour shoot was to visit Marsh’s Falls on the Oxtongue River near Dwight, Ontario. I arrived to less than appealing light at the falls and poor autumn colours. Rather than turn around and move on to another location I chose to stay for awhile and see what images may be hiding in plain sight. Often in situations like this I will reach for my 80-400 VR lens and see what photographs I might extract from the grand landscape. As I was scanning the river for pleasing reflections I noticed how the movement in the water was distorting the reflections of the trees along the bank. I captured roughly 60 various distorted reflections, the above image being my favorite.
