Reflections, times three.
North American Beaver cautiously checking out the guy with the long glass eye.
Louvers and flames meticulously painted on the hood of a hot rod.
Fly fisherman patiently waiting for a trout to rise and take his fly.
All beautiful Photographs.
Thank you very much Carolyn.
I like the one with the beaver… or is it a water rat?
Thanks, it’s a beaver. One of two I was photographing that day. One posed nicely for me and didn’t seen to care that I was there. This one on the other hand, if I even blinked it was gone in a splash. But it kept coming back.
Me too, and I too thought it might instead be a muskrat.
Definitely a beaver. Though I do want to get a few photos of muskrat.
I like them all, but the beaver photo made me smile.
Me too! Every time he/she came back I got the same look
I think I would vote for the fisherman A very cool series!!!
It’s my favorite too because making the series of fly fishing photos that “Patience” is part of has rekindled my love of the sport.
Fantastic set of images.
Thank you Edith!
I have never seen a beaver, he looks very relaxed.
The look is very deceiving. If I so much as twitched it would turn, and with a splash of it’s tail disappear under the ice. On the other hand, the beaver in this post, http://jeffsinonphotography.wordpress.com/2011/03/05/do-unto-others/ captured the same day, pretty much at the same time, seemed as if it couldn’t care less that I was there. I was well within 20 feet of them too.
That’s amazing Jeff that you can be closer to beavers and bears and not get attacked. I am a city girl, never been that close to nature, but I sure like to look pictures of animals.
Nice – where was the beaver taken?
Thanks Scott. There is a local reservoir that I drive by every day on my way to and from work. One day, a year or so ago as the ice was starting to melt, I saw them feeding in the open water along the edge and knew I had to come back with my camera.
FYI, it’s the same body of water that pretty much all my water lily photos are made on. The Bellamy Reservoir in Madbury, NH.
Super images Jeff!!!
I’m for the fly-fisher, too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one photographed as an abstract before. Great idea! Do you fly-fish, too?
Thanks Gary. I was doing a shoot for someone looking for fly fishing images to give as gifts for Xmas. In this, and several others, I wanted to convey the essence of the art without actually showing the entire angler.
And yes I do fly-fish. Sadly the rods have not left their tubes in far too long as the photography has taken over. This, and the entire series of photos have re-lit the fire though. I will be leaving the camera behind and taking my fly rod much more often this coming year. I didn’t realize how much I missed it.
My family is big into it. Love this shot!
Thank you Tina! I’m guessing when you say “your family is big into it” you must be referring to the fly fishing shot?
Yes, sorry – the fly fishing. Lovely post!
As a fly fisherman (fisherwoman?) myself I have to also say that I love the last one. It makes me itchy to go find a fish or two… or maybe just three… hey why not four…
I’m really glad to see that last image has struck a cord with so many people, both here on other places I’ve shown it. I think it captures the essence of the art of fly fishing. And why stop at four? There are streams in the mountains here in New Hampshire where I can catch beautiful native brook trout all day long. Even though they usually average only 4″-8″ long, on my 1wt rod they feel like a 5lb fish. I can’t wait for spring!
As others have stated, my fav is the last one of the flyfisher person. Nothing better for me when it comes to outdoor activities than flyfishing here in and around Spokane. Thanks for sharing the images!
Best to you and family for a thoughful Christmas
Thanks Rick, and I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas as well.
