What is this? Meteorites in the sky? A montage?
This picture was taken in Lac Aydat, near Clermont-Ferrand in Auvergne. There was absolutely no wind this afternoon, so the reflections were really sharp. At the end of the tour, I stopped to take a few pictures of the setting sun when I saw these sharp reflects amidst these stones.
I hope you'll like it

Great reflections! Good detail and true to life colors. Shame for the ripple in the lower left corner. Well done.

very good idea, quite unique i would say. It really looks like the meteorites falling down from the sky. Well composed, very good idea, perfect shot.

Oh Clement what a shot? It creates an illution that the stones are floating on the water.The calmness of the wind totally reflects the calmness of the overall pic. Well done.

Beautiful effects here, and I like the ripple on the left even if it gives away that the picture is of water. really well observed and composed.

Super effet... On dirait que les pierres tombent du ciel "falling stones"... C'est l'automne, après tout, pourquoi les pierres ne tomberaient-elles pas aussi, après tout !!! Superbe illusion. bravo

Very nice play with reflections and very good imaginations.
The colors tones are very good and very convincing
The Perspective and the DOF are excellent

Une composition très intéressante.
L'onde sur l'avant-plan gauche évite d'obtenir une image statique.
alainh (33201) 2005-10-07 6:23
une image tres sympa et l'allusion aux météorites est tres realiste. le plus marrant, c'est la regularité des roches.
feather (51130) 2005-10-08 10:10
They really do look like meteorites and appear twice their size because you can't separate the rocks from their reflections.
fayeulle (27827) 2005-10-11 4:07
Tien aussi une illusion. En serais tu amateur ?
GilbertB (12258) 2005-10-12 9:11
Salut Clément, très suréaliste comme compo, bravo.
pablominto (53746) 2005-10-18 5:38
Excellent capture! And you're totally right, it leaves me with a confused feeling... What is up and what is down..? However, the ripples lower left bring me back to reality... Well seen and nicely executed
ALSOM (6616) 2005-10-18 5:40
Sans ces petits vaguelettes, on a bien l'impression que les météorites nous tombent dessus car la reflection du ciel est superbe.
alejandroguzman (4684) 2005-10-19 11:14
AMAZING pictures !!
simple, original, and powerfull composition !!!
ps. I will add u into my favorites, ok?
rabani (9645) 2005-10-19 22:31
Hie Clement...I liked the idea.The stillness of the water makes the reflection of the sky, just so metallic. And the rocks, just enough to make the reflection a little bit interesting. Imaginative.Observant. A good trait for a good photographer.
pathy (178) 2005-10-20 13:52
tres bel effet ! l'idee est tres originale ! bien vu et bien joué !
danbachmann (1746) 2005-10-29 17:11
Turn it upside down and it looks like meteor rock falling from the sky! Nice illusion
randompics (957) 2006-03-22 7:38
A very wonderful photograph. It does indeed looks like meteorites shower.
picardo (2459) 2006-03-22 7:41
Wow!.. Perfect Shot!.. The only thing that does'nt make a real "meteorites rain" is that there is some little waves near the rock on the bottom left corner!. Even with this little thing.. the picture is incredible!!!. You have been very lucky!

Bonjour Clement, try black and white. You'll get closer to what you wanted to see first.Nice compo.
evanrizo (456) 2007-01-10 11:07
Woooh Clement, a great idea very good done.
Kenggaroo (849) 2007-01-11 7:29
Like Rocks in surrealism space, Clement
The picture gots a very progressive look. Like images on the progressive rock albums in the 70's-80's(Pink floyd,Kitaro,Alan parson's project etc.). It's full of inspiration and immagination.
hitesh (594) 2007-02-09 12:05
Avery sharp shot with 3d effect and I like the idea behind a simple shot.The reflection of the stones makeing the stone looks like a round objects.Tfs and regards,

Realmente parece que están sobre un espejo
lingvisten (79) 2008-06-04 3:45
Nice illusion. You had me fooled on the thumbnail ;)
Good colors and sharpness.
petrecretzu (168) 2008-07-22 12:18
Très bien vu, Clément! Je l'aurais appelée "Flying Stones" :)
Bonne composition, j'aurais ptêt essayé sous un autre angle pour prendre un peu plus du bleu du ciel.
