Calligraphic Reflections

Destruction Brook, Dartmouth, Mass

It was a cloudy morning as I stood throwing pebbles in the Destruction Brook, studying how ripples change shape when they encounter an object in their path.  The graceful circles came floating back as near perfect trapezoids on an arching orbit.  The sun's brief appearance created this rich cerulean background for the branch's reflections that suggest the strokes of a master calligrapher.
