(Featured photo – Reflections in a puddle of rainwater.)
This week we have a guest host for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. Miriam’s site The Showers of Blessings challenges us to offer some photographic reflections on reflections.
Grand Teton National Park draws photographers from around the world to photograph images of her majestic beauty.
One of the most famous is Oxbow Bend where Mount Moran gazes down on the Snake River, coiled in the foreground. Sunrise brings scores of photographers along the banks of the Snake. On this particular morning I got my wife out of a warm bed in 26 degree F weather to arrive at Oxbow Bend by sunrise.
Another popular gem for photographers looking to reflect at Grand Teton is Schwabacher Landing also along the bank of the Snake River.
Emeryville California is the first town you hit when you cross the Bay Bridge from San Francisco. One early morning I took my camera to explore Emeryville’s marina. Being a distance runner one particular boat caught my eye.
On a recent trip to Canada we visited the Montreal Botanical Garden. A pond in the Asian Garden offered some opportunities to reflect on water plants.
After days of rain during the San Francisco Bay Area’s deluge of 2019 I found reflections in the most unexpected of places.

Well done! Beautiful photos.
Thank you so much for visiting and for the kind compliment.
I love all the photos, Paulie. The fog made the first two so serene and peaceful!
Thank you Miriam. It was so cold that morning that the serenity was lost in the moment.
I understand you might have expected more, but from what I saw, they turned out perfect, Paulie!
Amazing photos! I am so inspired to look for reflections next time I am around water! Just Beautiful!!
Thank you so much Lisa.
Oh boy these are wonderful pictures. I especially like the water plants in the pond. It looks like an oriental graphic, which is appropriate given where you saw it.
Thank you Sandy. I have a few more of that same pond that are on my list for printing. Many thanks for visiting.
Thank you so much and thank you for visiting.
Nice set, Paulie! Those mountains really are breathtaking.
Thank you Eliza. The cold that morning was breathtaking as well but you know…we’re from the Bay Area and kind of wimpy when it comes to the cold.
Yes, you need proper clothing to weather the cold and not be miserable. I favor down myself!
Thank you Ana and thank you for visiting.
Just lovely, Paulie. I especially like the pond in the Asian garden. That would make a beautiful print to hang on a wall.
My thoughts exactly. I have two photos in mind from that pond that I’m going to print and frame. Thank you so much for visiting.
Stunning reflection shots! Thank you, Paulie for sharing this beautiful series.
Thank you so much Amy.
These are truly outstanding Paulie, I especially loved the 2 images with fog on the water. A beautiful post – the clarity of the reflections is amazing
Thank you Tina. Very much appreciated. I more or less lucked out with the reflections; no wind and not many ducks to roil the water.
Oh sure, that explains it —– NOT!!! 🙂
Wow! Perfect reflections 🙂
Thank you Len! Much appreciated sir.
Ah, these are all fresh and crisp – the Grand Tetons are marvelous. Oh the light! But still, I must chime in with all the praise for the pond leaves – amazing. Glad you are going to print and frame.
Thank you so much. To me they give off a feeling of serenity.
True, they do.
Stunning! I just love the sky in those Schwabacher Landing pics!
Thank you M.B. I stumbled on to Schwabacher driving back from the Moulton Barn. I saw a side road and on a whim decided to take a look.
Your reflections are PERFECTION 😊
Wow. Excellent reflections. Absolutely outstanding.
