in Thoreau’s Journal:


The different color of the water at different times would be worth observing. To day it is full of light & life––the breeze presenting many surfaces to the sun. There is a sparkling shimmer on it. It is a deep dark blue as the sky is clear. The air every where is, as it were, full of the rippling of waves.
