Image #00162

A couple of years ago I was visiting a friend (Graeme) while staying on the Sunshine Coast. We had spent the afternoon photographing with Maris and Zigi (two other friends also large format landscape photographers) on the shore of a nearby lake. With a collection of 5x4 and 10x8 cameras it must have made quite a sight.

After sunset we retired to Graeme's house and before dinner I browsed his small gallery, finding myself particularly taken by a shot of a very geometric rock pool.

A week or so later I was roaming the shore in the Noosa National Park when lo-and-behold I saw the same pool. My first reaction was "that's a nice shot", followed immediately by recognition of the pool as being the one in Graeme's photo.

Funnily enough Maris had also discovered the same pool and had photographed it although I don't recall ever seeing that print. Some people might be reluctant to essentially stand in line to take the same photograph, I however felt that nobody "owned" the pool or the image and proceeded to make my own version.

I could not recall the exact perspective of the print on the wall and it didn't matter anyway, the light and conditions were probably different on the day I was there. The shot would be taken, or not, according to what I saw.

I wanted to get higher to stretch the pool and create a squarer shot but the higher I got the more I lost the total reflection from the pool's surface and started to see the bottom. Eventually I reached a compromise and the result is as seen here.

Looking at the image now I like the fact that I can see some of the pool's bottom with the snail trails in the sand.
