About the Reflections Series

The inspiration for the Reflections in the River Ouse series came to me on the Cliffe Bridge where I paused early on a glorious mid-summer morning to watch the river flowing slowly, languidly out to sea. The air was still and the reflections in the river unusually clear. I pulled out my camera and started shooting, capturing only the reflections in the frame.

In contrast to that first morning of calm waters when I shot reflections of the West bank, the wind was blowing strong gusts the evening I photographed the East bank, making the water quite choppy and the reflections more abstract.

    • Thank you Verena. It looks like you’ve got an interesting project going on with your ‘day at a time’ tagline on your blog. I’ll take a closer look later today, after I’ve met one of my work deadlines!

    • Thank you for you lovely comment David. These images were all exhibited, printed at 75cm x 50cm, and they looked really stunning hanging on the wall together in the same arrangement as above — you could really look into the detail of the distortions caused by the movement in the water, which many people found fascinating. I remember one guy in particular staring for ages at ‘Harveys Wall’ (top row, second from left).

  5. The last picture, showing brick buildings with those shades of orange and brown, suddenly reminded me of the afternoon in the summer of 1985 that I spent in Girona (which a map tells me is at about the same latitude as Burgos). I remember reflections in water there, too.
