My version of impressionism came about almost by accident: While on a bicycle tour of the Loire valley, I was frustrated by poor conditions for photography much of the time. The weather was dreary, with a dull overcast thwarting any attempt at the standard "beautiful blue skies" tourist-style photos. So I decided to try something a bit different and minimize the amount of sky in the photo by shooting the château's reflection in the river instead of the château itself.

I got several variations on this theme that I liked but this is my favorite, partly because of the figures of the two people crossing the bridge into the château.
