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
a Male Blackbird
a Female Blackbird
a Collared Dove
Woodpigeons (and yes this is exactly how it was taken)
And finally, for now, another Starling. I love the irridescent colours of these birds!
More reflection pool shots to come soon!
