Stripes on the Water


Low early morning sun catches and illuminates long strands of chalkstream water crowfoot, creating a striped effect in the river.

I’ve rotated the image 90 degrees to add to the abstract feel.

  1. Oh yes >>>> this is certainly a departure for you and I like it very much!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Rating it on a scale of one to five Duvels, how many did you have??? ๐Ÿ˜‰ And you’ve rotated it – gloria in excelsis deo!

    It is simply superb. The colours are absolutely out of this world, with wonderful intergradations, but what really do it for me are the more luminous yellow-green streaks, which simply light the whole thing up! And its a very good move having the texture’s lineation not quite parallel to the frame. Up there with your best, madam, up there with your best! Uplifted, of Bristol ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. I didn’t have any Duvels – in fact, I didn’t have any breakfast either ……. :-0 Well, a quick slice of bread, but that’s not quite a breakfast is it …… ?!

      I’m really pleased you like it – especially the rotation and the luminous green bits. It wouldn’t have been the same without the luminous green bits – but – I wonder, now, whether it might have looked okay in a long portrait version. I’m very much attached to my 800×600 landscape orientation, I’m afraid. Must change that.

      Many thanks for your positive comments on this, Adrian. I’m pleased I dragged myself into town for a walk by the river now!


    1. Many thanks, Annie; what a lovely thing to say ๐Ÿ™‚ I must admit, I prefer to focus on the images rather than text. I’d probably bore everyone if I wrote about the images (a tendency to go into too much detail).

      I’m pleased you like the colours and the abstract quality of this image.
