No moistened bint [Monty Python] rising out of the lake?
Frank L Croston.: No, hence the title...

This is indeed very beautiful, Frank. For some reason I always have to look into 'water' in general. As a kid I always wanted to see if I could find 'treasures' and I never stopped doing that wink.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Astrid, me too, lets not stop.

Perhaps you could get Elizabeth to pose for the maiden for your next shot
Frank L Croston.: Not much water ( that you would want to go in ) around here, Elisabeth. smileBut I'll keep it in mind.
Magnifique !!

Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Claudine.

I won’t show my ignorance by saying that i’ve no idea what the title is about but nothing detracts from the glorious image.
Frank L Croston.: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/millais-ophelia-n01506 This is what I was thinking about, but on second looks its not very similar, never mind, it caused some interest. Thank you, Alan.

and no nymphs as on the painting of William Waterhouse which was unhanged in Manchester Museum - I like your water image very much!
Frank L Croston.: Not wanting to upset anyone In the present climate I left her out, Philine smileI see he painted Ophelia a couple of times, but on land. I'm glad you like it, thank you.
A "classic" shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: I see what you did there, Bill...smile

Great find Frank, where had you put her then?
Frank L Croston.: Secret, Andrew...
It would have been a real scoop, had there been!
Frank L Croston.: Might have been more than a scoop, Tom, a few questions might have been asked! smile
I do see a crown of leaves. Poor Ophelia.
Frank L Croston.: Poor girl, I got rid of her altogether...
I think it is a reference to the storm that clouded Britain's skies...
Frank L Croston.: Funny you should say that, Larry, I didn't post it at the time thinking that people would associate it with the storm, it's actually a reference to the paintinghttp://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/millais-ophelia-n01506.
Though now I look at it again its not much like it!
As reflections go thisis a really enjoyable one.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Brian.
