Whitman College Water Feature

Whitman College is centrally located between my house and the downtown retail corridor. In addition to offering a stellar liberal arts education for its students, it is a wonderful addition to the community with its well-landscaped campus, interesting architecture and outdoor art, and wide variety of cultural offerings for the community. 

I took advantage of the new snow and the absence of students (due to Thanksgiving vacation) to stroll through the quiet, undisturbed grounds.

 I am always drawn to reflections in water and the natural painterly look they have.

Same photo as the one above but with a painterly effect using the Brushstroke app on my iPad. Learning to paint is on my bucket list of things to do now that I am retired, so I feel a bit dishonest to find how easy it is to turn a photo into a painting.
