Reflected Glories: Trees in Sligo Creek
Takoma Park, Maryland, USA

Since 2006, I have been walking up and down a short section of Sligo Creek between the bridge at Maple Avenue and the bridge at Piney Branch, photographing the surface of the water – or the ice in winter. While I call the resulting images “Reflected Glories”, they show more than reflections. They are multi-layered, capturing the interplay of light on the creek bottom with events on the water’s surface and reflections of trees, clouds and sunlight. Leaves fall in a tangle of ripples and float through the frames. Occasionally a duck jumps in.

The photos are not digitally created fantasylands; they rely on water, light and the change of seasons for color and composition. They are, however, digitally tweaked to clarify the view, primarily by adjusting light levels.

As a photographer I have tended to look for beauty in unexpected places. While beauty in Sligo Creek is hardly unexpected, the images that form and dissolve at the surface of the water are endlessly astounding and delightful.
