These images were taken from two separate locations while hiking around Lake Higgins. The colors were perfect but the reflection on still water was rather boring. I was waiting for some ducks or geese to fly in – any activity – but no luck. When the wind blew across the water, it changed the perspective. The slow movement of the waves produced this feathery and painted look over the water.
Later, I spotted some low-lying shrubs with red leaves and berries, and another “painting” was created! Admittedly, once I enlarged these photos on the computer, I did think about taking up painting (still keeping that thought in the back of my mind).
