When I wander around with my camera around my neck I am looking. What catches my eye sometimes is a simple arrangement of lines, a pleasing pattern. What helps make a better photograph is a contrasting simple background.
In this photograph there are lines of the green grass plants against the water covered rocks of Georgian Bay.
I think my eye is happy to move back and forth from the green lines to the water and the light on the water and the colours and shapes of the rocks beneath the water.
