I’m fascinated by the art and aesthetic beauty in nature. One day as I took a walk on a nearby bog, there came a point where I had to walk over a wooden plank in order to continue on. As I was walking across it, I noticed the ripples in the water as the board bounced and bobbled as I carefully placed each foot forward (trying to be careful with my camera in hand). I stopped to look more closely at the ripples. I began to lightly bounce the board so that it would sink and rise, sink and rise, and so on. I took this picture after the immediate ripples calmed. I love the checkered pattern and the obscured reflection of a nearby tree in the water. Once again, I’m finding entertainment in the simplicities found in nature….
