This image almost didn't happen. I decided to go for a morning hike at Hood Mountain Regional Park in Kenwood, California and debated whether or not to bring my camera. In the end, logic prevailed and the camera came along. I decided to take a rest at one of the park's ponds and while doing so I noticed these perfect reeds and their even more perfect reflection. I didn't have my tripod but in this case the VR feature on my lens did the trick.
