  • And putting up her hands she unbound the fillet, and it fell, a slender coil of black amongst the golden flood of her head, like a serpent gliding down the sunglade on a river.

  • Sun-glade or sun glint - Both of these terms refer to a type of bright reflection of the sun from the surface of a water body. This may be observed from an aircraft flying over a large lake, or even in visible weather satellite imagery. In fact sun glint seen in visible satellite imagery often appears as a large bright region over the tropical ocean areas. Small brighter spots of sun glint over otherwise dark ocean surfaces indicate relatively calm seas (glassy and smooth) with very light surface winds.
