Default Waves or Ripples: Dancing Waves

I was attracted by the play of sunlight on the waves some months ago at a nearby beach. Enjoy

Neat picture. Is that the bottom that's causing the gold lines? At first I thought it was part of the ripples, but the more I look at it, the more I think it's clear water and the gold is patterns on the bottom. But I'm not sure. Love abstracts like this.

Sharpshot, vsch1, mtngal,

Thanks for your kind comments.
The gold streaks are actually sunlight reflecting off the crest of the ripples. The sunlight is being captured at just the correct angle to provide this effect. The bonus of the sparkling starlike effect of the suns rays bouncing off the surface of the water derives from the low angle of the sunlight at the time.

Cheers.
