Along the Arno with E.M. Forster / "... the Arno lost its muddy solidity and began to twinkle."

Evening approached while they chatted; the air became brighter; the colours on the trees and hills were purified, and the Arno lost its muddy solidity and began to twinkle. There were a few streaks of bluish-green among the clouds, a few patches of watery light upon the earth, and then the dripping facade of San Miniato shone brilliantly in the declining sun.

 E.M. Forster, A Room with a View (1908)
