What colour is water?
It's often the reflection of the sky
like these fresh turquoise tones
Or when the sun sinks low in the sky
and creates molten gold reflections
Forever changing and fascinating
and giving us wavy reflections from all around.
This was taken partially under a bridge
and you can see the tiny design of the metal structure
when you click on the photo to enlarge it.
Tiny waves catching the sun and my attention.
Since I no longer have my car,
it is more difficult to get out into the country and away from the town.
I have been more and more tempted to go down to the lake
which takes about half an hour on foot and by metro.
I like to contemplate the different moods of the water
at different times of the day.
Water brings me peace and serenity
and restores my inner balance.
When I choose to cross the lake on the ferry,
I enjoy the swell of the waves,
the tiny patterns on the water's surface
and the wind in my face
as I stand on the deck for the whole of the crossing.
Capturing reflected patterns gives me pure joy
and I never know how they will turn out
because the ripples in the water change constantly, even as I press my shutter.
Liquid cobalt blue fit for an artist's palette
The Impressionists would love to paint the movement
and orange reflections in this capture.
Rhythm and blues
Don't you feel like dancing?
Look at those turquoise tones
I want to melt right into them!
the blue of the sky and the water's edge just blend together
and become one.
All the blues
Looking very much like a water-colour painting.
The heat of these last three months
has allowed me to connect to water even more deeply
I have felt cooled and refreshed and re-energized
and so happy that I can get down to the lake
in rather little time.
Chilled sparkling water has kept me hydrated
all through these extremely hot months of the year.
