Water ripples, rings and circles
Day 29 of 366 Day Project
“Magic is everywhere, explore & be amazed everyday!”
Have you ever stopped to observe the ground around you when it rains? Well today I did, so my image is raindrops falling onto the back deck creating circles far bigger than their size. I love all the different water rings, ripples and circles created and the gloomy result it gives in black and white.
A ripple is a small wave on the surface of something, such as these ripples that form rings around the spot where the raindrop landed. The word ‘ripple’ was first used in the 1670s to describe something that causes a ruffled surface, sort of like how water seems to momentarily gain texture as it’s stirred. Ripple later came to describe a very small wave, but you’ve probably heard of the “ripple effect” in which tiny waves spread, setting off more and more waves.
