I think this would make a great wall hanger. Nice detail.

Bynx,

Thank you. In Icelandic there are two words, equivalent to "whitewater" and "blackwater". "Whitewater" there means clear water

Suppose English has "clearwater" and "blackwater"?

Anyhow, "milky water" has never been seen, by human eyes at least? Anyhow the milky water approach has become the standard. Tried to depict one of the true faces of water

Blackwater means stagnant or brackish water. You cant drink that stuff. White water is fast moving, the white being the foam on the top as it moves along over rocks revealing the speed of the water. I would put milk water in same category as blackwater. But I get where you are coming from. Whitewater rafting for instance, is going on a rubber raft over a part of the river which is dropping, and there are rocks stucking up or just under the surface. The water running over them turns frothy with foam thus the white look.

Bynx,

Thank you for elaborating on the subject. Often dictionaries are of no help. people know more
