Looking through my pictures today, I discovered that I have quite a fascination with water reflections. I've posted some of my favorites below:

This was a sunrise near my home at the marina.
This is another shot down by Anglesea in Southern Australia. There was a break a ways out and it formed the greatest waves when they hit.This is probably my favorite of all time, but no one seems to want to buy it at the art shows?... These swans were off the road in Alaska near Anchorage. I had to use a long lens and they are not the clearest but some people have liked the picture anyway.
This is the most and probably only ironic picture I've really taken. I was left in the dust (as usual) by my wife training for a triathalon and I had to stop my bike and take this picture in the ditch. It also helped give an excuse for being an hour behind her...
I saw this sunrise in my rear view mirror on the way to work one morning just west of Logan and I had to stop and jump in the ditch to catch it.
This reflection was found along the same road in Anchorage Alaska.
This was a sunrise in Yellowstone park near the West entrance.

I took my son Andrew out to take pictures of baby geese in the morning and loaned him my jacket. He waited quite patiently as you can see.

San Diego is probably Raeghn and I's favorite city in the US. Here is the sky line from the little island just off the coast.
Having a little fun with long exposures.
As you read before, I got stranded on the Rottsnest Island in Australia. Having nothing to do, I spent most of the night playing on the beach.
I was glad to find the water quite still as this fluffy cloud floated past.
On the way home from Logan I saw this sight but had no tripod so I braced my camera with a stick to a road sign for this 10 second exposure.
I was again fortunate by the Tetons to catch a 10 minute calm of the waters to get this reflection with my 10mm lens

The two shots below are from the marina by our house. I used a technique called HDR which is a combination of three different photos shot at different exposured and then blended together.
