Wind on water - # 08/235

I know we see lots of these "wind on water" effects, and this is one is nothing special. But, the undeniable thing is that people enjoy just sitting and waiting to see what the wind will do next. We can conclude that this has been done by Man for thousands of years. That's interesting. It forms a long thread of common experience that we forget at our peril.

In yesterday's Richmond upon Thames Photo we enjoyed the shine of the rain on a wet footpath. Here we have the wind on one of the many ponds in Richmond Park. This is England in October. The sky was grey, so the water is grey. The rest of this week might be sunny. I wonder if Cave Men ever complained about being "stuck indoors all day" because of the bad weather? At least I'm finding October more photogenic than the past months of a bad Summer. Is that just my mood, or is it "real"?

  1. Doctors will tell you it's real. that we need sun on some particular part of our back to improve our mood, hence those 'false sunlight' lamps one can buy. Doubt if cavemen had those and anyway they were probably thinking about where the next meal was coming from.

    This - apart from the colour - looks like patterns I've seen on sandy beaches. It's fascinating.
