As I wind down another Challenge (a two month one at that), I was quite thrilled to be able to share with you some of my favorite images from the past five years. Thank you for your understanding!
And, what better way to end my "Reflections Challenge" than with a reflection! Sadly this fall did not fit into my schedule to capture Nature's tapestry of leaf colors.
If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough.

Reflecting on Autumn
Stony Brook ran a field trip to Rhode Island – an opportunity to shoot the Barns of Gloucester. I stopped at numerous barns, all with the expected results of barn doors, a horse or two, and some foliage. Approaching the Bissell Farm, I noticed the pond in front of the barn and the colors reflecting off of it. I couldn’t wait to park the car and head over to the watery palette. A couple of laps around the pond to check for the right light and the most colorful fall foliage reflection. A few minutes with my digital workflow and voila!
As far as Robert’s thoughts about not being close enough, if I were any closer, my camera gear and I would have been wet, very wet!
Monument Valley! This one is dedicated to all of you. . .
