This photo is entitled “Blue Poplar.” I snapped this photo at the bank of my creek on the same day as the “Impression de l’érable” photo-Thanksgiving Day 2011. “Blue Poplar” was one of the first photos that inspired me to focus on tree reflections for my art show. The water was as clear as the bright blue sky on that day. The crooked poplar seemed to grow out of the water as if I were looking into another world below the surface.
As I continue to post my tree reflection photos you will find that they start to get more complex.
The photo was taken with an F-stop of 5.6, ISO 400 with natural lighting at sunset.
Cassandra Brown is a local photographer who, over the next few weeks, will be posting samples of her photography from her recent senior art show thesis exhibit at Bridgewater College. The exhibit ran from April 30 to May 12, 2012. Cassandra was inspired to focus on the reflections of trees in rivers and creeks around the Harrisonburg and Piedmont area.
