Snake-like roots that help keep it dark
































"...and the grove of trees growing out over their lake......wind down snake-like roots that reach as far as the water and help keep it dark"  Beowolf

A deep green rim of algae has appeared at the edge of the lake. On a grey afternoon this created the most enchanting dark mirror for the lakeside trees. Impossible to focus because of glare and the odd stray branch, I had to wait until these were uploaded to see the full extent of the images.

Darkness, surface, reflection, depth.

  1. Yes, enchanting...beautiful yet a little mysterious. :) Due to the ongoing construction that is going on here, our lakes are always murky. But I appreciate the critters the ponds attract.
