pretty water, Lagunitas Creek

Most folks pass by on the road, and never notice the artistic side of Lagunitas Creek.

Blotchy and a bit gloomy -- but that will change when some of the surrounding vegetation becomes illuminated.   It's more or less a matter of timing.   Later, the show is over -- the colorful reflections pretty much cease once sunlight hits the water.

I find great fun in sleuthing-out all the various reflected colors on the giant canvas of rippled water.

These photos remind me of the "color-flow encaustic paintings" by Frank Dorland.   He would mix oil paints with a special encaustic wax medium of his own secret formulation (Dorland's Wax Medium), spread them thickly on a canvas or painting panel, and then melt and flow the colors using a heat lamp.   Different pigments would react slightly differently to being pushed around with heat -- the results could be quite unpredictable.

And who doesn't love bubbles?   I'm a space-case, but I could watch them for hours...

Ripples and reflections -- not to toot my horn, but I really think these are my specialty.

Well keep on tooting Don, I think so too. The combination of light and ripples is fascinating and always different.
This is a great series of photos.

As someone else who LOVES the abstract quality of ripples and water flow frozen in a frame, these are fantastic! I love how you, the light and all the other unseen forces involves all conspired to make the water look like mercury or oil. Really beautiful work! Thank you.

They ARE your specialty, and I love the bubbles, too. I really love the tiny waterfall that makes them.

Great ripples -- and bubbles, too.
