Reflections on a year in 365 photographs

Sunset reflections on a lake.

Patience is a virtue.  I visited an extinct volcanic crater with some colleagues today and spent an afternoon shooting hundreds of images.  There were plenty of good photographs among them, but I still felt there were better images out there.  After the sunset proved mostly benign, we headed back toward 29 Palms.  

We had barely gotten down the road when I looked right and saw this image.  I braked hard enough to dump everything off of the seats, but quickly recovered, jumped out, and shot a good string of photos.  I knew they would jump off the screen.  I could have wished for a less regular composition, but there was no time to find a better angle before the fleeting light passed.

  1. Beautiful picture! The colors are so nice. I always wish I would just stop the car and snap a photo when I see something, but I never do. This gives me a little inspiration to do so!

  2. Thanks. I’m finding that with this project 365 I have a reason to have a camera with me everywhere I go. And I’m thinking about photography and images all the time. So when I see a scene like this, I have no trouble stopping to capture it. I get excited about seeing the finished images and writing a bit about them.

    • Thank you, Linda. I think the image captures the reflections fairly well. They were sublime in person.
