The puddle in question had some kind of plant matter—cottonwood seeds, perhaps, or sawdust—floating in it in great eddies. The photographic result made me think of clouds, waves, nebulae. Taken on Larimer Street, River North Art District, Denver. Cropped, with some color adjustment, and montaged.
A few days ago I said I was finished posting photos from my trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens. At the time I thought that was true, but I was mistaken. Here’s one last photo of water reflections. I like it better than most of the others I posted. I intensified the colors, but not dramatically.
This is the last photo from my recent visit to the Denver Botanic Gardens. The gold reflections are from a yellow wall down which water is cascading, producing the bubbles and waves. I saturated the color just a little.
At the Denver Botanic Gardens. The gardens incorporate a lot of water features, like this long trough that reflects trees and the sky.
