Walking towards water

Exeter University’s Streatham campus has beautiful landscaped gardens and walkways; full of exotic plants, sculptures and water features. I have spent some time admiring these aspects over the past few months, and now want to document and share them with others, in particular the water features. I’m hoping to do this as a kind of ‘water meander’ – rather like a sculpture trail which others can also enjoy.

Yesterday, with this idea in mind, I made another explore of the grounds, and found some intriguing examples of natural flow visualization – water shadows on leaves, vortex swirls seen in duck weed, etc. There is a lot to discover, and I’m putting together the photographs I took … here a couple, the first one witnessing what appears to be an exotic peacock looking at the fountain….
