Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “undulate (wavey/ripple)”.  I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

Of course water ripples are the first thing that came to mind when I saw the word undulate. But I wanted to share this photo of pine tree bark first, because it undulates in its own special way.

Most of my photos showing water ripples happen to have another subject in the frame, like this great egret.

The water ripples around this duck, along with the shadows on the lily pads, are very interesting too.

Some ripples can be small and others can actually be big waves about to break in the Pacific ocean.

On this last picture, I photographed the water because I love the reflections and the ripples in the water. The four ducks and the light breeze happen to be the creators of those ripples.

    • Thank you, I really like that one too. I was originally trying to take pictures of the ducks but then realized the water itself looked a lot more interesting.
