The fishing pier at Bradenton Riverwalk is another favorite composition of mine because of how the light plays on the still waters. I've taken this shot several times before and I'll probably continue to take more when I end up here in the morning. I suppose I can start a fishing pier gallery before too long.
As soon as the sun rises the breeze starts which then disturbs the glass-like surface of the water. But during those few minutes at dawn this is what it looks like.
As you probably already know I love reflections in the water, there's something surreal about it that transforms an ordinary scene in a way that's hard to explain. I look for reflections whenever I'm out shooting and the more I find the better. Sometimes even a puddle of rain water will do. Reflections are like portals into another world, one that insinuates something more ethereal.
So yes, I'm a big fan of reflections, and since this place is close to home you're likely to see more of them in the weeks and months to come.
