I love to shoot reflections especially when there is a lot to see in the reflection.
The reflection with the white puffy clouds was taken around 9:30 a.m but the one with no clouds was taken around 7:15 a.m. There is quite a difference in the look of the reflections in these two pictures. In the early morning, you will never get some pretty clouds in your images but a little bit later you can.
I prefer reflections that involve the sky with some puffy white clouds to add more interest to the picture. I also like it when there is very little wind so you can see the reflection clearer without ripples in the water.
Reflections are a mirror image of what we see in front of us. It is our future and look how bright it is.
