Merced River

We walked from our campsite to the village

When we crossed the river we stood transfixed.

The ripples in the water act as lenses,

and make constantly shifting patterns on the river's bed.


You can find more watery sites here.

I think the last one enlarged is especially mesmerizing and would make a lovely abstract painting.
