Forest Lake

Well, here is the eponymous feature of the suburb that I call home. (Eponymous, I’ve been waiting to use that word in a post...)
I was doing a shoot to capture reflections recently and this one didn’t quite make the cut due to the surface being disturbed by wind and ducks and whatnot.
Can’t really do those big sweeping vista shots. I’m more of a detail photographer. But by abstracting this image into fairly contrasty b&w, maybe it works just as a study in tones and shapes...

Hello Nicole, nice image of our local attraction. I like the lateral symmetry you have created using the reflection which is enhanced by your crop. A lot of your images of late seem to be quite contrasty. Is this hard edged photography something thematic you are exploring?
