This evening a few minutes before the sun stopped shining and the night drew on I took some photos. The colors were soothing and the ripples in the water produced a hallucinatory sensation.
The pond has full time residents which include a domestic duck, and wild Mallards and Coots.
On occasion Canada Geese will stop. Today a Heron came and stayed long enough for me to take a picture from the opposite end of the pond.
The sunlight on the water and the motion of the ripples are able to produce a trance. If one lets go of his thoughts he might disappear into the moment.
I tried to capture the magic of the moment in the video below. Enjoy.
