Austin, Within Town Lake

A Tower

A Tower

As I walked around Town Lake I began to gaze into it, and this is what I saw.

  3. I’m afraid that this picture may have had an adverse effect on me. I felt like someone drowning, glimpsing upwards just as they are about to lose consciousness. Umm. I suppose a strong reaction must be a good thing. Stunning pic. Eerie -to me – but stunning nonetheless.

    • There is a hint of something or someone swimming in the blue area, you might be reacting to that.

      • Possibly. It was my first – and quite visceral – reaction. I felt like someone took all the air out of my lungs for a moment. It is all due to your talent I think – to take shots that can induce such strong reactions is quite something.

        • When I first started diving the whole thing made nervous. I became determined to keep diving and conquer all fears related to it. It is not only the fear of drowning or suffocation but claustrophobia and vertigo are involved too. Thank you for the thoughtful comment.

  5. I’m just an iPhone-ographer, but I followed the lake theme today with some shots and a post about Onondaga Lake in Syracuse, N.Y. It used to be known as the most polluted lake in the country, but it is bouncing back. The photos are not spectacular like yours, but I’d be honored if you took a look.

  7. The featured one reminds me of Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings. He’s in the Menil Museum. He did all those pastries? You must know who I mean. I guess it is the pink with the cobalt blue in stripes along the side. Anyway. Good work!

  15. Ron, you share my passion for reflections! I find myself constantly looking for reflected images, seeing the world in a different way….it is a form of escapism I am sure, but it gives me great pleasure. Great images as ever n

  17. These and the reflections from Brookfield Zoo are really good. For god’s sake man don’t stop the shots of Renaissance fair girls, but keep the abstracts and landscapes coming too!

    • Thank you. Other photographers say that I am unusual in that I do very different genres.
