Artist's description:

We once had a holiday in Tunisia and I found a small marina/fishing port about three miles from our hotel. I used to walk to the marina every morning to see what was going on. To capture successful reflection images like this requires specific conditions - little wind, the sun in the right direction and at the right height, mostly calm water. But on top of this the water needs 'something' to create a slight, localized disturbance; it needs to be moving, just not too much. After years of experience I have found that ducks, seagulls, jumping fish, small boats, a minor earthquake in a neighboring country, are highly suitable water agitators. Sometimes, if I can do it without getting arrested, I will throw stones or bits of wood into the water to create my own ripples. I had to get to this particular marina at 6am; by about 8 or 9 the water was like a washing machine with boats coming and going all over the place. So it's a tough job but I do it so that you don't have to.
