  2. Thanks, Leslie. Today Sarasota is gray and rainy, albeit 66 degrees at the moment. These days don’t occur very often here.

  3. Excellent; wonderful colours; and I like it in the square frame, which makes it a fraction more abstract.

    • Thank you, Harrie. I hadn’t thought of that. The square format removes that landscape mentality, doesn’t it.

  4. I too like the square frame on this. The colors are delicious.

    • Thanks, Lynn. On photos of water whose surface is moving —even just due to the wind—I don’t know what I’m going to get when I trip the shutter. The shutter speed has to be at least 1/80th of a second to avoid blur, and our eyes can’t stop the motion like a camera can. I’m never sure of the composition, though sometimes I have a better idea of how the photo will turn out than others. Anyway, that’s when I wind up with square formats. I probably shouldn’t think of them as failed horizontals or failed verticals, but because I didn’t envision a square photo when I took it, I usually do. Glad you like this one. I do, too, though I can’t get away from thinking of cropping as cheating.

  5. This is a tremendously attractive series of images that I have been following in the last few days/weeks, Linda. The patterning is so unusual and creates fascinating abstracts

  6. Thank you, Andy. I just couldn’t stop at one or two of these. More are coming.
