Perfect Clouds, Reflection

Reflections are some of my favourite urban landscape themes. There are all kinds of reflections and each time I happen upon one I am taken aback by its perfection and beauty. I rarely go out looking for reflections, which makes discovering them a continued delight. I think of them rather like snowflakes – each one is unique and cannot be duplicated. Often I find it hard to tell  which is the reflection and which is reflected. Like my almost perfect urban landscape reflection of clouds in water at Fisherman’s Walk, Canary Wharf, discovered on another beautiful September day. The water in this man-made lake was almost completely still and the clouds were reflected so perfectly that there was no question that I would have to capture them and make them the focus of this art photograph – the clouds in the sky from an unusual perspective. I find this such  a wonderfully relaxing art photograph and even though this scene will never exist again in quite the same way, I can enjoy it and share it when ever I wish. I am thinking it’s going to make a beautiful canvas or metal print.

I often  like to lie on my back in the park and look up at the clouds….and sometimes I find a perfect reflection of perfect clouds, in a perfect sky.

Reflections on Canary Wharf

Architecture Reflections Canary Wharf

Architecture and reflections in Canary Wharf, a major business centre in London, England

Canary Wharf is located in Tower Hamlets and, along with the City of London is one of London’s two main financial centres. The architecture is amazing (tall, modern skyscrapers, curved glass and steel which oddly enough makes me think of Gotham City) and the area has a dynamic feel to it. The 2nd tallest building in the UK (the Shard is the tallest) is in Canary Wharf – it is called One Canada Square.  We were there on a Friday evening in September and it felt electric. This photograph I actually got as evening fell – I was entranced by reflections of the building in the glass and the colours brought out by the setting sun. Continue reading »

Fall on Toronto Waterfront

Toronto Waterfront in Fall RW 5268 01 Fall on Toronto Waterfront

Toronto Waterfront in Fall

One of the joys of being a photographer is seeing and capturing the different seasons as they happen. As you know I love winter photography,with its sometimes unearthly and startling rendition of the urban landscape. And summer on Toronto waterfront is always beautiful. Few things come close though to Fall – or Autumn as we Brits call it. Fall on  the Toronto Waterfront is simply  beautiful.  In Canada Fall shows us the season’s most amazing colours. In fact going to see the leaves “turning” is actually a national thing in Canada, and there are spots you can go to get spectacular views of the trees in all their finery. The colours only last a few weeks and as I write this the trees are now bereft of their beautiful leaves. Continue reading »
