Very nice Vivienne, love the color of the water. Years ago I use to live on a lake. The views of the moon on the water were continually changing. I miss that.

I like the soft colours Vivienne, and the little waves give a feeling of a relaxed atmosphere. I used to love sitting on the beach when the sun went down or the moon was in its element.
I have always wondered about the reflexions when the luminary was so low, because they are all pretty much straight, and sometimes a little widening at the end as you have done, so. years ago, I went searching for photos and couldn't find any with the reflection starting off narrow and going very wide, as a torch would do. Most are almost dead straight. and others are more like yours,  and ripples can affect it slightly. I want to understand it...  Maybe because the moon etc are round and not flat as a torch is, and the light from it is diffused... that just popped into my mind lol. [smile]  Robyn

Thanks for liking this Suzette.  I would love to live on the water again, although we are not far from it, you have to be there to really love it.  I also  miss those peaceful views.

Thanks Robyn for your encouragement.  I did have the reflections going at an angle and Roy pointed me in the right direction.  I can't answer your question sorry.  Maybe your conclusion is a good one and also the right one.

Thanks Bob for your lovely encouraging comment.  I agree re the reflections but I have been trying to work on them for a while now.  Roy was able to help me correct this one because I had it at an angle and he said it would be better as it it now.
