Up here in Canada we have lots of Rocks and Trees and Water. That is all that is necessary to create a photo like this. Of course its flipped upside down, but I thought it would make an interesting effect. In the workshop you can see this photo right side up. But I thought that seeing it this way is much more effective. Thoughts on this? Just rocks, trees and water!

Wow Paul, this is incredible. I was scratching my head until I read your note :-)
Very creative. And I think I like it better upside down.
Thanks for this.

This is a mind bending shot - and a big surprise when you first see the full size version. Great idea to show this upside down, and a beautiful shot!

I love it!
This is exactly like my westcoast shot here. Shot of a reflection and then turn the image upside down making "A different take on things...".
I'm glad you left the color in as it adds a nice touch to the shot. Excellent work Paul!

It makes you lose your orientation for a while and that is very beautiful!

Excellent, Paul! On se demande ce que l'on voit et il faut regarder à deux fois pour comprendre. Le retournement de photo est très judicieux et crée un effet fantastique.

Hi Paul, yeah this is an effective effect. very interesting. I thought that you took this picture from the water where you can get reflection like. But well you did great here. Sothy, later

Hello Paul -
Very clever in deed. I read the title and looked at the image and was scratching my head until it dawned on me, duh! Then I read the note, another duh! I guess I need to be more observant. Well done!
Thank you for sharing and making me think.

Hi Paul, The lights on the edges of the pebbles add a good dimension to this nice photo. Also nice that you reserved some space for the ground too. Tsemin

Very interesting picture. I was pretty confused at first look.

That's quite a flip! Here I was enjoying the scene wondering about the rocks at the top...The hues and tones here are subtle yet most effective. It has the quality and appearance of a water colour painting. Superb clarity and graphism. A very fine capture, Paul.

Paul, can I say that this is one of your most artistic to date...that I've seen. Simply incredible. You've made exactly the right choice by presenting this photo upside down. I honestly don't know how to describe it...like some futuristic experiment with giant rain drops. The effect is mesmerising. The highlights on the rocks give them a wonderful smooth texture. The simple tones in the photo also add to the effect. So wonderful in its right orientation, but just incredible flipped by your eye.
A favorite of mine buddy.

This is a very interesting photo! I love the effect by just simple turning the photo upside down, smart idea! Great reflection in the water and I really think this one is very creative! Excellent work, Paul!
