Reflecting On Life

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 29 November 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The reflecting pool at Bloedel Reserve. Because of the time of day, the people on the bench can't see the reflection you see here. They just see dark water and some guy at the other end with a camera. You have to walk the 250 feet (76 meters) or so to get the incredible view.

I really like this photo. I'm generally a fan of sky in photos, but in this one, I might love the photo even more if the blue was cropped off. I can't believe how much green is in this photo!
