BreakingModern — Like cloud photography, capturing reflections can be tricky. When using reflection to craft your photograph, you battle external items that can interfere with your subject matter. Some photographers enjoy shooting lakes and ponds in wooded areas because the water acts as a mirror for the surroundings. This creates some beautiful shots — until a largemouth bass decides to ripple through the water after an insect. That perfectly smooth mirror is ruined pretty quickly.
It’s not often that you can catch nearly still water in a harbor. Martinez had perfect timing with this shot. She was able to show off the beautiful clouds and their reflection in the water. Notice how the clouds look like a watercolor painting with its reflection in the harbor. The blue-pink hues of the photo are beautiful and temper the picture with a coolness that reaches out. Makes you want to grab a light jacket and sip a cup of warm tea, as if you were going for a walk around the bay.
