Alien Abstract

While driving to Invermere a couple weekends ago, I noticed a large pool of standing water in the ditch on the side of the highway. The pool was directly underneath an interesting rock formation, so I made a note to myself (and my wife) that I needed to head back to that location with my gear the next day. What you see below is the result. The pool provided a perfect reflection of the rock above, and I felt that an abstract crop worked well with the subject.

I hope all my American friends remember and enjoy the Memorial Day holiday.

Excellent symmetry, and I like how the lower section has all of the imperfections. Happy Memorial Day 🙂

Wonderful shot, Heath. This truly is an excellent abstract… and yet still familiar.

Great abstract! It almost looks like you are looking down on the subject. Happy Memorial Day!

I really dig this reflection. Its one of those things I look for when Im close to water. Great shot!

Nice work! I like the sleek line that the cropping made with the reflection/rocks!

Can’t go wrong with abstract every once in a while.

This is sweet Heath, totally digging the subtle reflection. I mean, it is obviously a reflection, but at the same time, it’s almost hard to tell.

Really like this, the reflection is sooo sharp! Good title too, it does look very alien!
