This has to be one of the worst pictures I've ever taken, but I'm including it anyway since the subject deserves mention. This "lake" was actually a pond about 60 feet across, and dark black / grey in color owing to some trick of the light and angles of the bottom. When the wind whispered across it (the area was almost totally silent), it responded with graceful and perceptive ripples. In spite of the negative colors, this place was profoundly benign.
