On Golden Pond

I'm not usually drawn to painting landscapes but I took the photo this is based on a couple of years ago and the composition intrigued me. I like adding unexpected elements most of the time but in this, the still, serene pond giving way to the rushing water seemed to be enough and thought anything additional might be distracting. Also, the two geese (which were in the original photo, by the way) seemed content meditating alone on the quiet side of the pond.
