Pollen in the rain is nice.
But without rain, it’s nice, too. You’d think these currents might be created by the wind.
Nope, they run with deep flows of water. The wind doesn’t touch them.
Waves slosh them a bit.
Some kind of electric thing happens around logs.
This is the Conconully Reservoir in the springtime. The entire lake is blooming with these tiny round algae. When you hit a thick patch your kayak slowwwwwws down.
But who would mind? Ospreys, that’s who. It’s hard to see fish in this stuff.
See what I mean about the logs? Thanks to the beaver.
The white haze on the image below is the sun, filtered out of the sky and laid on the edges of waves of energy.
