Unique Perspectives with Glass

Upper left clockwise: Self-portrait in a window of Cabin #1, with a dreamy Orcas Island sunset behind me. Exuberant blossoms are reflected on the sliding-glass door at our condo. Shadows from the deck railing create another texture. A Mt. St. Helen’s Glass paperweight creates a surreal picture of where it rests. In the lens of reading glasses, the distorted image of a ceiling light. Mirrors mounted around the top of the Albany Carousel add another dimension to this amazing structure.


The glossy surfaces of Lion’s Mane and Moon Jelly fish, and “by the sea sailors,” reflect sunlight and sometimes their surroundings.


Bird Echoes

P1100823P1070757American Wigeon

Water reflection photos vary, depending on the stillness of the subject (in this case birds) and the surface movement of the water. I love the distinct echo images of these three.  On top a resting Sanderling, in the middle a flock of Short-billed Dowitchers, and below a duck.


Water Mirrors

These shots are among my favorite images that show an almost perfect reflection on the water surface, of light in the sky and the surroundings. Clockwise from top left; Long Beach WA sunset, Orange Sunset, Orcas Island, WA, sunset clouds in the marshes, Long Beach, Still Life Crescent Lake, OR, and Pastel Sunset, Orcas, Island WA.


Looking through my archives, I had to remind myself this challenge is about reflections, not refractions or shadows or silhouettes! In my final shot, Jello stands at the center of both her shadow and her reflection in the surf at Long Beach.


Thanks to Miriam Hurdle at The Showers of Blessings for a lovely challenge!

  1. Lovely selections of reflections with many sub-themes, Linda. I have so many favorites!!! If I must pick, I pick bird echos and water mirrors. Then the first and second bird photos and the orange sunset and Crescent Lake. They are all stunning and beautiful!
