Fog creates a mystic environment for photographers. While the clarity is somewhat blurred, it adds a bit of mystery to the images. Normally a clear lake on a sunny day, Bass Lake in North Carolina is shrouded in fog creating an eerie image.
It almost seems like this Mute Swan is mesmerized by the abstract reflections at Swan Lake Iris Gardens, Sumter, SC
Glass provides a wonderful mirror to create unusual reflections. The first image is of reflections on glass from the sun shining on another building. The second image depicts reflections of architectural marvels of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

Reflections off a glass building cast psychedelic images on an adjacent building adding intrigue to the photo
The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.
In reflection photography, using water, windows, mirrors or any sort of reflective surface can change an image into a work of art. Here the shine of an antique car and its curved surfaces and wheel cap create interesting reflections.
Reflections of a building on glass somehow distort the image making it surreal
Reflection photography, also referred to as mirror photography, is when you use reflective surfaces to create an artistic echo of a scene. Here are reflections of trees on a lake creating a Monet-like painting effect. The red kayak adds to the scene.
Even nature provides scenes that capture its serenity in monochrome
Color has a significant impact on our perceptions, emotions and physicality. Incorporating the color red into photography denotes passion and bold emotion. Because it commands our attention, red brings text and subjects to the central focus of an image. Will be posting this week images with red as a predominant color to attract attention.
Here is an image of abstract reflections on water.

We end our series of images from around the Wilmington, Delaware area with a composition of reflections from and stairs through glass windows.
Wilmington, Delaware has over 14 buildings that surpass 200 feet. Amazing reflections on glass buildings matching the color of the sky and clouds.
Wilmington is the largest and most populous city in the U.S. state of Delaware. The city was built on the site of Fort Christina, the first Swedish settlement in North America. It lies at the confluence of the Christina River and Brandywine River, near where the Christina flows into the Delaware River.
Will be posting images from this area over the next few weeks. Here is an image of the early morning sunrise reflecting off buildings in downtown Wilmington.
