Reflecting in Shadows by alexandre-deschaumes Reflecting in Shadows by alexandre-deschaumes
Inspired by "in Sadness , Silence and Solitude" album from Raison d'Ítre . A vast ambiant music , very evocative .


This is the mesmerizing reflection of "rochers des FIZ" in Antern lake .. My favorite place in my area ..

A very wild and wide place .. I hope you'll like it.


During my last workshop , I woke up earlier than them and ran on the dark side of the lake ( ... ) our tent was just in front .

I love when a photographer plays around with lines and structures of nature. This can be rivers, trees, paths... you name it.
Here the colors and of course the reflection makes this whole scene "pop" nicely.
The shaded part of the foot adds a good shade to contrast and divides the scene into the 2 separate parts they are.

Often symetrical nature is hard to capture nicely, even with the help of water but here it's done with great punch-power and skill, good job!

This piece is featured in my journal this week and will stay for the next as well.

Have a good one,

You've captures Hexagram 41 from the I Ching, with 9 in the first place.
Mountain over Lake becomes Mountain over Water (Hexagram 4). You can
look it up with pictograms here:

What strikes me about this photo is actually the LACK of symmetry after an
initial apparent symmetry. After a moment of awe, you slowly realize that the
reflection is rippling -- it's order/chaos/Tao. As your eye moves from the left
to the right, following the dynamic energy of the composition, you see the human,
the turtle (tent?), and finally, the black dot on the water that IS NOT a reflection.
There is no dark shape on the hillside above it. It is the entry into the underworld.

Brilliant work -- I will enjoy watching your next posts.
