The movement of the water changes constantly, given what lies below it (ie. boulders), or above it (waves and reflections). The resulting images are very intriguing to viewers.
Captivated, they explore the movement of autumn in motion within the image.
Above The Rapids
This image was captured just above a small rapids in October on the Manitowish River in northern Wisconsin. The gold is from the reflection of the shoreline trees, ever colorful in their autumn cloak.
Captured later in the afternoon, the sunlight was enough to accent the water without being visually commanding.
The swirling motion of the water was created by an underwater rock, located just below the surface to not be visible, yet affect the movement above.
What Do You See First?
As you view this image, what captures your attention first? Perhaps the larger swirls in the upper section as they migrate though the image?
Have you found yourself now exploring the curving lines coming in from the left and the bottom, and those existing to the right.
So simply, yet so complex!
