You could take any tiny part of this and turn it into an abstract painting, or an embroidery....or is this devaluing it, so see it in other terms?
Another wonderful study of water and wetness. Has anyone done a book of water portraits? Just a thought!

It's not at all devaluing it, RR. On the contrary, it's an interesting and useful insight, and one I appreciate. Thanks!

I'm sure I've seen a book of water photos, but can't remember, offhand. I'd be amazed if no one had done one yet.

Yes. The light and textures work wonderfully--the way the lines turn to squiggles gives the illusion of movement.

Debbie, yes, it's ironic that any more movement in the water would have largely destroyed the reflections; the impression of movement arises from a relative lack of movement. I hadn't thought of that until you pointed it out. Thanks.
