    You are going through a great run of beautiful imagery! It must be a healing experience for you! Keep it up!

    Thank you so much for you kind comments! I have this birdbath in my front yard and sometimes leaves fall in it. These features created by water swirls and shadows are only clearly visible in photographs but often not noticeable by naked eyes.

    I agree - the shadows are unexpected, given the shape of the leaf, and the swirls are really intriguing as well.

    A striking image, but a simpler leaf might be a better fit with the theme.

    Beautifully simple in concept and execution, yet complex in the natural detail and light refraction.

    That's lovely. The shadows and swirls, as you say, are interesting. It looks like the leaf is clutching the water. In tt.
