Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #207 Seeing Double

 Jez invites the hunt for reflections with a fantastic collection of great photo examples. Visit his post HERE.

Be it mirrors, still water, or glass I always look for reflections when I am out with my camera. For this challenge, I limited myself to some of the over 900 reflection images I have taken.

Taken many years ago with my first Nikon D70 at Mirror Lake in Yosemite National Park.

I last visited New York City in 2014 during a snow storm in February. We had tickets to visit in March 2020 but canceled just as Covid got serious and N.Y.C. closed down. Good thing!

The rest of my images were taken closer to home in Northern California.

This is what I will call “Seeing Multiples”

Hope you enjoyed all of my doubles.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #187 Water

Anne challenges us “to find some water fun Please show us your water fun and tell us about it.” So I went through my archives and retrieved some memories. Unfortunately, we have not had any rain for quite a while so puddles were hard to find.

Playing in water is fun and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Abstract or creative images can be found. Let your imagination go.

Water can be very powerful. It can carve out deep valleys or change the coastline.

Water reflections make up some of my favorite images.

Water is a very precious natural resource. In California we are going into another year of drought. I will be mindful of how I use water. Can you think of ways you can save H2O?
