This water has moods.
I have been to this same spot many times. The water in front of me has attracted many creatures so I keep coming back. When I find myself alone, I occasionally make images of the beautiful scenes before me.
The water is often dark and foreboding, reflecting what it sees. It takes a better photographer than I to make something interesting with all that attitude.
On other occasions the water reflects the light and beauty around it and the entire place comes alive. Those are the good moods.
