photoblog image Double reflection

Double reflection

This is the hull of a bright yellow RIB (Rigid hull Inflatable Boat) moored where the bright sun sparkled on the water and reflected the ripples back  onto the boat.

I quite liked the contrast between the geometry on the boat and the almost abstract patterns on the water.

we have visitors until 15th April.

Fantastic reflections on the water and the lower hull. I think I'd try cropping off the top yellow band though smile
Very nice, I like it very much. Well done!

The whole thing makes a great abstract shot. Well spotted!
It almost looks like paint floating on the water. Cool!
Ohhh Ellie, this has an amazing detail! Trimmed very well, I like much! It is different from other photos yourswink
That's cool: a simple reflection abstracts those lines well.

This image is very pleasing to the eyes. Reflection in the water is great, but reflected ripples back on the hull are even better. Steve's idea of cropping the top yellow layer might be a good one.

Nice one Ellie!
Great, creative shot, Ellie! Love it. smile
Fantastic idea Ellie, you have captured a very imaginative thought. Probably you shouldn't have written what it was and should have asked us to express what we thought. I'm sure we would have had a lot of 'creative' thoughts grin

lovely photo Ellie....to crop it like this is great...smile
Wow ... Really artistic Ellie !
Bravo!! Very cool. 10 thumbs up.
This is just brilliant Ellie. Dunno really what it is, and don't need to know either. Perfectly caught.
The commentary brings the picture to life , I was clueless as to what it was I was looking at. Very nice well done.

I wonder if we would have guessed what this was, Ellie, if you hadn't told us?! Well, maybe. It really is a fine example of abstract art in photography. The bottom part of the water looks like mercury...or oil not mixing with the water. What a nice pattern it makes!

Lovely. I actually thought it was a New York cab on a very rainy day when I first saw the thumbnail. I was close though. smile

I though it ws a car as well from the thumbnail. Great picture!
very nice crop this way
A very fine image of abstract pattern. It zings!

I saw my first Swallow resting on a telephone wire today. Have you been photographing them yet?
Makes for a great abstract shot.
