Absolutely no photography was used in the creation of this image.
The “reeds” were created in Apophysis 7×15b as an abstract fractal with added Fx using plugins polar and Julia3Dz, based on the tutorial Volume 58 – Spherical Jscope for the Xaos Phobic by plangkye on DA in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Additional enhancements, including the gradient fill background and digitally painted crescent moon, were added in GIMP v2.8. Lake effect in the foreground was added in UltraFractal 5.04. Best if viewed larger.
