GEO-tography: Reflections

I'll bet not more than one in ten of us actually "see" the topic of this GEOtography post when we are out riding. We can be looking right at a magnificent reflection and still be completely oblivious to it's existence.

We probably see more of them, or at least are more aware of them when we are looking at photographs; but, up close and in person – not so much. Most of our brains have been trained to tune them out as distractions. Until, that is, we take the time to just "stand a spell" and take in the view. If we decide to "really" look at what we are seeing they pop into existence as if by magic!

These photographers have captured "Reflections" to the "umpth" degree! As I think you will soon agree.

As always, the goal here is NOT to make us professional photographers, but to merely become acquainted with the possibilities. Sort of like hiding the speaker of a tape recorder under your pillow, I'm hoping that by looking at enough good photos some of the learnin' might subliminally seep into my brain.

[As before, these are full photographs so be patient while they load.   You can click on the photograph to open the full image.]
