run deep. That’s indeed the impression we get when looking at them from the right perspective, as we did in last week’s post when looking down at Diamond Lake.

But here, standing at the overgrown shore of the lake, all we see in its still waters is but reflection. We even cannot make out the water itself, let alone its presumed depths. We can only deduce its presence from the reflections we see of the tree branches. The water is so perfectly still that it is almost impossible to distinguish between real and reflected branches. They blend together in one big tangle of twigs and leaves, among which the still waters of the lake remain hidden from view.
Seen from a certain angle, still waters run only skin-deep.
