Reflection Pool - a taster

One of the things I have wanted to try for a while was a reflection pool. I have seen some excellent photos taken at these pools and fancied trying something similar. Those of you familiar with my photography will know that I take a lot of photos in my own garden - so it seemed a natural progression to set up a pool at home.

The idea is to attract birds down to water, where I can photograph them with their reflections. As the birds need to come quite close, all photos are taken from a pop up hide. I will go into the practicalities (and difficulties) of the set up in a later post - but first, here are a few images as a taster of more to come.

 

Firstly a Starling

And finally, for now, another Starling. I love the irridescent colours of these birds!
