Weekly Photo Mojo: A Silver Lake Reflects the Sky in Infinite Symmetry across Oregon.

It was Day 3 of my train adventure across America and my last day on the Empire Builder. We were just entering into Oregon when I woke up and looked out my sleeper car and peeked out the window and saw this. Immediately I grabbed my Canon, racked the shutter speed up to 500, and began snapping photos.

The clouds and the sky melted into the horizon becoming one with the mirror lake. The world could be flipped upside down and we’d never know.

This photo is from a cross-country 6 day train adventure across the United States on Amtrak and the pre-cursor to my trip to Southeast Asia. If you want to check out the daily recap from this trip and life on the train, start at Gnarly Train Adventure Day 1!

Weekly Photo Mojo is about stimulating your cortex with retina rupturing and awe-inspiring photos from around the world to help you reach Terminal Vicariosity (The point where the mind reaches maximum capacity from living vicariously through someone else, and chooses to start actually living.)

What feeling does this photo evoke for you?

 **DISCLOSURE** I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a free trip courtesy of Amtrak for review purposes. The opinions, photos, videos, and use of the word “gnarly” are completely my own based on my experience.

    Maybe it’s just me and my love for unedited photos but I do prefer the first photo over the second. Although your quote is quite eloquent, as are most of your writings…but hey, we already know that. That’s exactly why you are one gnarly son of a bitch!

      Yes, I definitely love the natural unedited photos as well, usually for the quote ones I add a dream like effect to them. Rock on man, thanks!

    I like the reflections, the composition formed there from and the way aspects of the bridge vanish into the backdrop*
