  4. View from satellite or toward the space ?
    I like meditating deep blue there.

    • I continue to be delighted by what ressembles space imagery that I’m finding under water. I like the blue, too, and surprised at the places where blues are showing up.

  5. My first thought was a view of the universe. Chaotic perfection.

    • Isn’t it so interesting how images from a bubbles in a pond can be so representative of something so complex. I had the same thought you did when I encountered them. I love your words “chaotic perfection.” A lovely description. Thank you.

  6. Wow! These are like frozen moments of violence – beautiful, but unnerving.

    • Thank you, Richard. A wonderful description, and just picking up on your thought, I’m interested in the idea that such violence is taking place beneath the surface of what appears (from above) to be such a quiet and peaceful pond.

  7. The angles, contrasting curves and color are so dynamic in each photo in the series. Wow!

    • From the outside and from above, the pond looks so wonderfully serene. There is a lot more than we realize going on beneath the surface. 🙂

  8. Gorgeous, Melanie! What do you do to process these?

    • Thank you, Carissa. I use Lightroom 3 for organizing and processing all of my photos. I still have a lot to learn about Lightroom. There are a lot of tools available that I still haven’t learned how to use yet, but the ones I do know how to use, I like very much. In fact, in light of our recent exchange about layering, I know I’ve seen layering as an option, but I’m not sure how extensive that tool is in Lightroom (compared to Photoshop), but now that I’ve seen your experiments, when I have some time I may explore it a bit.

  10. For some reason I am reminded of a scuba mask. Like there is a frozen explorer down there!

    • Karen, I love that idea, and I can see what you mean (about the scuba mask)! Thank you for saying that.

  12. This one and the next one might be my favorites of the series, I think. I like them very much! These are all fascinating, Lemony.

    • Thank you, George. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series. I saw you have a new post and am eager to get over and spend some time visiting.
