Water has a unique ability to magnify all available light. I’m partial to sunsets on the water, personally. Imagine this shot with the same sky over a green field. Or a brown field. Not cutting it, right?
Water transforms light, multiplying all its properties into something extraordinary. More than the sum of its parts. What do you think the person piloting that boat must be saying to himself in this photo? What does the air feel like? (answer in comments!)
Do you have a photo of light on water? Please share! I’ll feature it here on Water Wednesdays.
