    This week’s photography gallery is all about reflection and symmetry. Mountains and lakes often go together and never fail to make fantastic subjects for landscape photographers. One of the most appealing things about photographing mountains beside lakes is that they can cast fantastic reflections. When shooting, try using a ND graduated filter of about 2 stops to enhance the reflections in the lake. For more on using ND grad filters, read ND grad filters: What every photographer should know.

    The examples below all make the most of the symmetry of the reflections and often abstract the mountain range into shapes and flowing lines against the sky and water.
