Winter Reflection

Posted by Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 14 January 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

An early morning - winter reflection photo in the San Martin, California area as a storm approaches the west coast.

Spectacular sunrise, Scott. That brilliant yellow sun surrounded by the loveliest glow of Perfect composition, also. Forget the rule about cutting an image in works with perfection here.

@Suzanne: Suzanne thanks for your comments! On this reflection I could not figure any other way to compose it and still have some balance to the photo.


Very very beautiful !!!

Magnificent, Scott - almost the feel of a monochrome silhouette. I like it!

This is beautiful in so many ways. The colors are astounding, the reflections perfect, and you captured the gentle motion in the water. Normally I don't like a sun in the center, but you've so many trees (and their reflections) in the image and so well framed, it works wonderfully!

Scott, your landscapes are gorgeous! I'm inspired to go outside and shoot some sunrises and least when it's a little warmer than 17 degree Fahrenheit!

Wonderful shot, Scott! The many non-sun elements free you to strike and achieve more symmetry than in most sun-centered pictures. Beautifully composed. Thanks for sharing!!
