A companion piece to 'Tranquillity'. I loved the exuberant nature of the water splashing in an almost abstract fashion over this very happy dog. It is hard to make out if he is a boulder with the water splashing off him or he is indeed causing the splashes. The summer shower coming down and catching the sunlight adds to the atmosphere and excitement. This image was captured within minutes of the one of the dog in 'Tranquillity' and for me highlights how different personalities can explore the same world and throw back entirely different experiences for each one of us. In the same way we humans can experience the same thing but respond in entirely different ways and mostly unaware of the impact we have on others.
