  1. Great composition, in all of them. Great!

    Worn rocks, some as smooth as the water, the result of glaciers perhaps? Beautiful orange and blue/green lichens. Is the green algae in the pool the same toxic one that infests the north coast of France? The rocks look almost alive, slithering like seals into the water. A magical, but not enticing scene, because of the positioning of the sun with its blood red rays. Very artistic, you have the patience of Job, I think.

  3. You’re right, smoothened and polished by by the last ice age some 10,000-100,000 years ago. I’m no expert, but I believe the algae in the picture is not toxic Cyanobacteria, which is formed during the summer months only. – Thanks Rigby for good questions and comments.
