looking down is still looking up
The final image is slightly less morbid than what struck me about the scene at the time – I was reminded of Gollum leading Frodo and Sam across the Dead Marshes, saying \”This way. Don’t follow the lights. Careful now, or hobbits go down to join the dead ones and light little candles of their own\”.
Beautiful. I love the contrast between the soft reeds under the water and the harsh, refracted pattern of the branches.
Wow! That's beautiful. It looks like a painting.
