I was amazed when I saw an example of this concept at Billy Proctor’s museum on Gilford Island in the chain of Broughton Islands between the mainland of British Columbia and Vancouver Island. What looks like a carved totem pole (mouths, eyes and such) is really the shoreline captured in perfect stillness of early morning light with the reflection creating the facial symmetry. A quick crop and a 90 degree rotation in post processing and you have the totem pole look alike! I searched every day of my 3 week boating trip and the morning we were leaving for our day’s journey home, the conditions were perfect. I was thrilled!!!
