Update: On Thursday, Nov. 24th, 2011, this submission was announced as the winner of the Vimeo Weekend Project "1 minute" video challenge. My sincere and humble thanks to all concerned. This was particularly meaningful as there were over 200 excellent submissions and this was my 18th time competing.
Another look at the stillness and reflective quality of a nearby harbor on a Saturday morning (November 19th, 2011). This time a coot crosses the field stirring the reflection lines with some added oscillations. I shot this with the camera on a tripod and tilted the head 90 degrees so that the reflection lines appear horizontal. My first thought at looking at this is 'screensaver'. But maybe it has more value than that?
