I just invented a new word – watergazing. It’s the act of looking at water. Clever, no? This is not to be confused with “water gazing”, or Hydromancy , the practices used by ancient mystics and shamans to acquire wisdom and knowledge from the Spirit of Water or to predict the future. Watergazing is not about seeing the future and it doesn’t answer your metaphysical questions. It’s just looking, observing and appreciating the beauty of the flow or stillness of water. It’s simple. Living near a large lake, a lot of small lakes, a river and quite a few streams and ponds gives me the opportunity to do this often. Sometimes I have a camera with me.

I haven’t registered this word with the US Patent Office yet, so feel free to use it in the meantime.
