I'll be anything you want me to be

Reflections at day's end
London, ON
October 2014
I took this picture last autumn while on a walkabout with our daughter. Note to self: Take more walkabouts.

The funny thing about water is it has no inherent colors of its own. Yet it'll happily take on whatever reflections happen to be present in the immediate environment. I'm no expert, but it sure seems to have happened in the scene you see above.

I know there's some sort of higher-order lesson in there, but I'm too dogged by heat, humidity and fatigue to figure it out. Maybe later. For now, I hope you enjoy the pic.

Gorgeous photo! Reminds me of serenity...The water looks like gold..I guess the lesson here could be: take whatever comes your way w/ease..or we don't have to look far to find beauty...

That is a very striking shot. But what really 'makes' it is the contrast with the golden water and the dark black stones (?rocks). I think we can't always appreciate the true beauty of something without a contrast. Maybe in life we can appreciate the good and fine things best against the dark and ugly bits of life?

That is a beautiful photo. The rocks look almost other-wordly, surrounded by the golden water.
