I took this shot a couple of years ago where we holiday regularly but I have never been able to capture the same set of circumstances again since this shot. When I viewedthe shotfor the first time it reminded me of an Escher illustration, a fish in a pond called Three Worlds-being the bottom of the lake, the reflections and the tree root itself.

Superbly done. One has to look closely to tell that you are looking at a reflection and not a lower part of the tree. To top that, it is all in focus.

That is a beautiful image. It encourages one to take another look or two.

Thanks Bynx for taking the time to include the Escher illustration, it will definately help with my interpretation of the photo.

Hi there

Firstly, MVASteve - well done on capturing a very interesting photo and displaying it well for us - and pointing us to think of Escher's great work. It (both your photo and the Escher picture) does have an almost magical quality / look to it.

Where was this photo taken? (Aussie mountains or internationally?)

During the years I lived in Romania I saw enough snow and ice to last a lifetime... however it would be nice to go back just for a quick visit (a few days) of "real winter"... but then back to Australian summer (I'm a warm weather person)...

Ah yes... it all starts to make sense. Escher...a man of genius, intelligence and art... no wonder you're a fantastic guy Bynx, as you appreciate his work too. thanks for sharing that with us.

Cheers & regards

Paul

Thanks again Paul, there was a small clue in the title, "Salty Escher", yes the white on the tree roots etc. is salt. The photo was taken down at Yorke Peninsula at the tip near a town called Stenhouse Bay. The salt lake is part of an abandoned gypsum mine that use opperate in that area. I visited the lake every morning for nearly a week but it was always too windy. On my last day there....no wind.
regards Steve.
