About the Image(s)

The grasses and weeds along the irrigation ditch are well-watered so they flourish. You may be able to see some sunflowers in vigorous bloom. The sky is featureless due to the California wildfire smoke. The image was treated to the usual tune-up and crop in Snapseed, then resized with PS.

A very pleasing image Bob.

Nice leading line of the water. Great color. I like your crop off the top. This would make a nice print. Jerry   Posted: 09/03/2021 07:51:35

Lovely colors surrounded by the greenery and topped with the cloudless sky.
The little tree at the end of the ditch, framed by bigger trees makes the image for me. The foreground weeds including the milkweed pod complete the frame. Nicely seen.   Posted: 09/03/2021 07:52:26

This works for me! The river takes you in but it's just enough off center to give some dynamic overall feeling. Simple combination of blue, greens and yellows. Those foreground weeds establish some depth to the image.   Posted: 09/04/2021 06:36:33

I like the depth of field that runs from the foreground to the trees in the backdown. Neat reflection in the water. Colors are pleasing. Good catch and editing.   Posted: 09/06/2021 13:00:57

A very peaceful environmental image, one that I would probably just pass by. Beautiful vegetation and nice reflections in the water. I'm glad you stopped to admire and photograph it.   Posted: 09/06/2021 17:21:56

Cheerful nature scene with Black Eyed Susan's and grasses framing brook. Like the golden reflection in brook. Good composition.   Posted: 09/14/2021 07:46:59
