...With a Paddle. A cloudy day to diffuse the light, along the south shore to drop the wind to nil, and light floating a kayak to remove hull ripples, makes even a moderate Smartphone photo look okay. The mass of tiny white flowers on this bush caught my eye as I approached it while fishing with my son this week. My wife and I have never found any activity with the ability to calm as kayaking does, and I hope you get a little peace from this capture as we do. Sweetbriar Creek, south-central North Dakota.

'Nik', I think you paused your paddling to avoid disturbing the smooth mirror image by your kayaking activity. The lack of any breeze was helpful to you. The result is a beautiful and soothing photograph.
The white flowers are a bonus!
I can confirm your wish/hope from the last sentence in your narrative.
