Get refl ective
Get double the colour by using lakes or other bodies of water as a mirror to reflect scenery
What could be better than featuring one autumn palette in your landscape? Including two, of course! Double the colour by including a reflection. In terms of composition, one approach is to position the horizontal waterline in the centre of the frame, so that the reflection has equal weight with the landscape. If you’re feeling adventurous, climb to a higher vantage point and shoot downwards to include more of the scene. Lakes surrounded by forests are the perfect spot for these shots. The best time to shoot is during the early morning, when the light is golden and wind levels are lower. Any breeze will disrupt the surface and spoil your reflection.
