I was looking for a place to get out of the heat. When I found this little overhang that shaded the ground I sat back and relaxed. That's when I saw the way the water caught the reflections of the branches above. It was everything I had been looking for in the heat. All I had had to do was just stop and sit down. I stayed there for about an hour painting and sketching and photographing the action of the water. It was the best hour I had spent all day.
