This is the same stream as my earlier post ‘A Cooler Place by the Stream’ but looking along it. Again I liked the reeds in the foreground and the light shining on the tree trunks. The almost total predominance of the blue/greens give it a calming effect.
I’ve had this image for a number of years but was put off by the lack of subject and the complexity of reeds. It is of a small stream by the side of the Canal Du Midi, in the south of France. The light and shade at the time was superb and I sat and did a painting looking along the stream, but in hindsight this is a far better view and captures the moment better – the warm morning about to break into a blazing day.
