Slipping into the Pool

Great Photo Contest!

There is a great new photo contest I encourage all of you to join!  Get the details on the page!

The prize is a fantastic metal print from Image Wizards.  I’ve had many things printed there, and you will be amazed.  Really.  I’ll be one of the judges along with Frederick Van Johnson.  So, if you don’t like the choice in the winners, please blame Frederick Van Johnson.

Daily Photo – Slipping into the Pool

This vast indoor pool at Hearst Castle is just about perfect.  The only thing that would have been more perfect is if I was actually inside of it!  If I wasn’t such an honorable guy, I would have stripped down and jumped in for a bit.  It would have taken at least 15 minutes for security to get me out of there.  But it would have been a sweet sweet 15 minutes.  I could just say that I lost my mind for a bit…  like Hearst Castle was Shutter Island and I was a bit loopy because of the drugs.

A friend was looking at my other photo of this pool (You can access it by clicking on the Hearst Castle category below.  He remarked that he thought it was a slick, reflective floor and not a pool!  I had never thought of it like that, but then I noticed… and I could also see it like that.  A bit like a Necker cube!

    Love this shot Trey – actually I love this one and the other one from the pool at Hearst – you know when I went there I didn’t get to see this pool – many years ago – but guess it wasn’t on the ‘tour’! WTG!

  • Wow it does look very tempting for a dip on the fly! What a stunning place!

  • Gotta admit, I mistook that other photo you refer to as being a reflective floor. heh. Now I see it’s a pool! And one heck of a nice one at that!

  • Looks soooo cool!

  • Indeed, love those colors!

    Nice shot. Is this handheld? Or did the photo Nazis let you bring a tripod…I was there this past summer and was really bummed it didn’t get to use my pod.

  • This was a Tripod – I had my own security guard to take me around… so I was able to use a tripod everywhere

  • Patrick

    Wow! Stunning shot!

  • Makes me want to walk on the water! 😀

  • Bonnie

    Such a calming reflection. Serene. Beautiful!

  • Gail in Montana

    Very beautiful photo, Trey. Great job!!

  • Cool – Was the security guard for your safety of everyone else’s? Maybe they have had occurences of people going in for an impromptu dip here……

  • I almost went here last year but went to photograph the elephant seals at San Simeon instead. Next time I am in Cali, I will have to check this place out. However it just won’t be the same unless I can manage my own security guard too 😉 Nice shot Trey

  • So simple yet so beautiful.

  • superb pic. love it.
