Alchemy II

I can’t tell you how great it felt to be back out in nature after 3 months. Nature sure has a healing force.

This water abstract scene captured my imagination on an alpine lake from my recent trip. I enjoyed how the morning light was reflecting on the edges of the ripples.

Hi Alfredo, :slight_smile:
I really like this image, I think it’s the smoothness of the water, it seems to have a heavy viscosity and that is probably due to just the right amount of exposure on the highlights as well as the smooth waves and ripples.
I also like the mild chaos of what looks like freshly fallen leaves and foliage under the surface.

I agree with nature having a healing force.

Your image sends rhythmic, calming signals into my brain… soothing mind waves… yes, pure sensory absorption in the beauty of nature (Schopenhauer’s “aesthetic contemplation”; just one way to describe the experience) is healing. Beautiful work. Great title, too. Your image opens the door to an invisible world.

You’re welcome, just trying to resonate with your image as a possibly mutually beneficial exercise :slight_smile:
