The color of water, is it what it appears to be? >>>read on

The goddess stands on a rock and is unsure whether she will jump into the water. Is she standing on a rock by the sea or is it a lake somewhere in a forest? The color of water depends on the soil and the reflection of the air. For this design I was thinking of a lake in the Ardeche, France. During a vacation I made a canyon survival trip where I had to jump from a high rock into deep dark water. Incredibly scary! I realized that if the water had been azure blue I would have jumped in without any effort but the dark green was now scaring me off. Once jumped and surfaced, the euphoric feeling was all the greater. I did it! And what had I actually bothered about? Had the color of water scared me off?
