I would have to say that the photos I use on this blog are fairly normal most of the time. I don’t think that I have ever posted anything too unusual, and generally I can identify why I like a particular photo. Today’s photo, however, is quite abstract, and I know it appeals to me, but I can’t exactly say why.
This was taken last weekend when my hubby and I were out for a drive with our cameras as the sun started to settle lower in the sky in the early evening, and the ripples on the water were created by fish, probably catching bugs at the surface in this open section free of the surrounding lily pads. This, of course, meant that I only had so long to capture this scene because Mike was running for his fishing rod as soon as he saw the ripples :).
Maybe it was the last remnants of sunshine painting the surface of the water or the expanding ripples or even the reflection of the dead trees in the water, but this picture just makes me sigh in happiness and feel totally relaxed. What do you feel when you look at this photo? Does it make you feel calm and peaceful?
