We cannot see our reflection in running water.
It is only in still water that we can see.

For this week’s Photo Challenge, we were encouraged to post a photo showing an unusual point-of-view. The photo above is actually the flipped upside down bottom from this one, where I feel that the reflection is the stronger element of the whole shot.
