I love how the colors coordinate and how the dappled sunlight has been indicated. But the fish seems to be floating rather than swimming. hmmm.

Dornberg, Pampe, Wayne- yes this was mellow yellow time. This creek(Callispell Creek) is a golden yellow clear running creek-thanks for the comments.

Very nicely rendered tree and the reflection in the water are fascinating to me. I like the water, too. It sings "Serenity".
