[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another reflection of autumn in a stream. You can see, if you look closely, several leaves floating just below the surface. A nature abstract.

Where there is no “moral gravity” – that is, no force that draws us to the center – there is spiritual weightlessness. We float on feelings that will carry us where we never meant to go; we bubble with emotional experiences that we often take for spiritual ones; and we are puffed up with pride. Instead of seriousness, there is foolishness. Instead of gravity, flippancy. Sentimentality takes the place of theology. Our reference point will never serve to keep our feet on solid rock, for our reference point, until we answer God’s call, is merely ourselves. We cannot possibly tell which end is up. Paul calls them fools who “…measure themselves by themselves, to find in themselves their own standard of comparison!” - Elisabeth Elliot

Taken hand-held, auto everything, 12X zoom somewhat extended... some PP work in Photoshop CS2

Hello Larry,
An attractive abstract image which looks like individual colored puzzle pieces floating in water. It reminds me of thin ice on a frozen lake. Nicely shown original piece of natural art work. Well done!

Hello Larry,
such a clever capture of the nature art. The ripples give a good effect, and the yellow leaves deliver an exciting colour.
You have composed it so lively and its so difficult to reach this view.


That is absolutely wonderful Larry. Could you send me the bigger size so I could put it on my wall! What a splendid piece of photography!
