Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

The strengths of the composition is the warm gold hues and the minimalist shapes and the reflections on the water. It is a study in geometric shapes - some lines and then you have the reflected 'illusion' of triangles that captures and holds my attention.

like reading sanskrit... on the beach. maybe Einstein on the Beach too.

By giving the reflections equal weight with the direct lines. new inorganic shapes are created from organic sources. In spite or (or because of) oversharpening, the lines take on a life of their own distilled into a primitive, simplified vocabulary that is a delight to revisit. A top five choice.

That's some magical water, definitely qualifies as artsy. Looks like hieroglyphics, good observation and good luck.

I remember something like this from 2011. A modern and abstract feel to this image.

A wonderful quirky image that I could ponder for some time, looking for, what, I don't know, but enjoying it.
