Standing Water

Posted on 23. Dec, 2009 by in Casual

On the night I arrived at a friend’s in Silver Spring Maryland there was exceptionally heavy rain. This Lumiere is of the water standing in my friend’s back yard about 48 hours after the rain stopped.

    This is beautiful Lorenz, it looks like a more rustic earthy Monet painting, with the scruffy bits abounding, come to life.The subtlety of the colors is lovely-it really appeals to an introvert.It might be standing water but it`s not still-i love the way you have captured subtle movement as well as color in the Lumiere.

    I’m glad you see that – I was trying for something like that but was a bit disappointed – I think because there isn’t any clear point of focus. That is a strength too – the way the wind creates ripples. Still, I just feel It might have been better if there just happened to be a rock laying on the lawn. What your comment does is confirm that qualities that appeal to introverts or meditation are very important. I have one of a river in Georgia that I will post sometime soon that has a lot of that quality. Also one that has water beading on some branches during a rain with flats and people moving in the background. Both are about water.
