Line Dancing

Line Dancing

“Line Dancing” shows¬†lily pads and reeds reflecting on the water. The reflections make the lilypad look like a water strider, the insects that are often seen skating upon the water. We guess that the sky is being reflected in the water as well, but it is mixed with glimpses of the underwater world below. Of note, is how the reflections are affected when they reach a floating twig.¬† Instead of carrying right over them, the reflections are refracted by the surface tension of the water and bent out of shape.
