Mini tripod,15cm high .... sounds a bit like fungi photography.
A great effect you've achieved by this method.
I think I'll try and get out tomorrow and experiment myself if the tides are right.
Thanks for the tip on low POV reflection shooting.
This is such a different pov, what a nice perspective, I just love it. I could easily see these pictures hung onto the white walls of a museum, big big big frames with the beautiful colours, the beautiful light with the subtle and graceful hints of colours in the clouds. Really, the colours are fantastic, the light is superb and exposure spot on. Plus, we get the privilege to sit and contemplate just like a frog, a salamander maybe, or even a turtle! I like the trick you use, maybe a helium filled balloon could help ;-)) Me will get myself a gorilla pod!
Hi Bob. Once again the is pure beauty for me. Its so simple but so clever . You have an eye for this type of pictures. I am sat here with clasical music on the radio looking at this first class picture its so relaxing . great colours and detail with a fine refection. wel ldone TFS.
Perfectly composed shot Bob!!
Love the low POV and great DOF. Makes you feel like your lying almost eye level on the water and as you stated, seeing what a frog sees!!! Well done!!
Great angle, depth of field and framing. Even thought the larger cattail is in the center, the smaller cattails on the sides frame the image and provide balance. The reflections lead the viewer not only to the subject, but also into the depth of the image. The sky narrowly distracts the eye away from the water line.
i really like your nature graphico artistic presentation. They are lovely and unique.
such a beauty with the reflection, clear water depth and nice colours of the sky. The lines and hues of the long leaves are very attractive.
A splendid presentation.
