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.
