Backwater, Blue Water

BackwaterStill everywhere in the Scottish Borders the fawns of February remain, but touched with the brighter colours of Spring.  Was it Coleridge who described that haze of leaf-buds on trees as “chocolate mist” ?  Usually I walk on the other side of the river, but this day I explored a few yards on the pathless side, and enjoyed the peace of a small plantation crossed by the River Leet, where one could catch in the distance the sound of children shouting from up above; but scarcely a bird to be heard this March afternoon, not even the harsh cry of a disturbed heron.  Yes, all very quiet, with  water like blue glass echoing precisely the outline of that tree.

Puddle 3

reflection1

Even during this hot summer, there are puddles at the bottom of slopes. This is all so transient. I appreciate the contrast of the muddy rim, the muddy water and the clarity of the reflection of the leaves. Everything is changing.  If I walk round the puddle, from another angle I see nothing.  In the photograph, when it is enlarged, the puddle water has all kinds of mauve colours in it. The camera picks up more than my eyes. Or has a different interpretation.
