Car Pool

This photo was taken on November 18, 2013 at 11:01 AM.
The location was in Tyson's Corner, VA.
The "Take It!" Came just as I was reentering the car after having taken some shadow shots cast upon the wall of the building that I had past and returned to with the hope of catching the wrap around the corner effect of the shadow.  The hoped for shot did not show up in the way I had hoped for.  So - after a few of these pictures decided with some disapointment to return to the car and get moving.  As I looked across the roof of the car one more time at the shadows - I happend took down and saw the refelection of a tree in the glass of the sunroof of the car.  What a surprise.  I took only one shot with the hope of a catch and made the way  down the road.
The After Take: The value of this shot did not make itself known until later in the afternoon while reviewing some of the shots of the day with one of my great critics. He stopped me at this one - and said the outline of the sunroof make it look like the shape of a swimming pool.  I  could not have agreed with him more.  And thus, the title to this very nice photo was born.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of this picture and the story behind it as well.  
Sometimes that second look can be a gift.
All the best ,

    I think its really cool how you get the colors of the trees through the reflection. Fall is such a colorful and great time of year.
