I'm always looking for reflections, whether or not its a full reflection of the subject like the top image, or a reflection within the image. The second image shows the clouds and mountain reflected in the lake behind the primary subject, in this case making one think, what am I really looking at in this image?

A beautiful day in the Enchantments, probably my favorite part was exploring the area around Leprechaun lake. The Larch changing color to yellow and the blue sky made for rich colorful images, the above two images where taken from opposite ends of the lake.

 we where surrounded by granite, Larch and towering mountains, all under a blue sky day, was sad to leave, Leprechaun lake was probably the most spectacular place I have ever camped.

Gothic Basin a nice hike in the North Cascades, off the Mountain Loop Highway, a great place for an overnight hike to an alpine landscape full of photographic opportunities.

The first shot was a small tarn early in the morning, tripod placed at waters edge, using the reflection of the delicate clouds in the blue sky to create a composition with fairly even tones throughout.

The second shot, again with the tripod set at the waters edge, this time at Foggy Lake, I used the snow and the shape of the saddle and Del Campo Peak and its reflection to compose this image.

The third image, collecting as many ridge lines as where available, with the misty valley's adding the needed contrast to make them stand out.
