ripple effect for my website

I am developing a website www.fasequipment.com any ideas on what would be good to put on header next to the FAS logo? I was thinking of a sun setting at the sea, with the sea rippling. I could also has some text on the water.

Whats the easiest way of doing this ripple effect, I have see java applets around...but I would like to stay off any plug-in driven stuff. Can this be done using javascript and DHTML? Or any one got any other ideas on what I could put there? I need the advice!!

You want the ripple to be animated? Not gonna happen without using either an animaged GIF, JAVA, or Flash. Stick with a static image. You could even do a screened back static image of a sun over water.

It only works in IE, but there's a javascript version at http://builder.com.com/5100-31-5072700.html .  Personally, I don't care for it.  It's eye candy that doesn't communicate any information.
