Daily Practice 144/365

Title: "Cauldron of life"

I went exploring new places today and came across this murky little tide pool. It was swarming with some kind of larvae, the water looking like the proverbial primordial soup. As my shadow fell across the pool, they all dived deeper, some primitive survival instinct kicking in. In a hostile world, this little oasis cupped within the lichen covered bedrock must have seemed like paradise.

Water, the very basis of life, rediscovered in this beautifully composed moment.
