Description

I did a bike trip on the White Rim trail and took photographs all along the way. One campsite was at the White Crack campground. During the night, it rained heavily filling the potholes, creating incredible reflections of the nearby mesas. By holding your camera as close as possible to the water’s surface, these small potholes appear to be a miniature lake. I have used this technique many times over the years to create lake reflections, where no lake exists.
