Boulder Reflections In Autumn
This particular image was captured as the Manitowish River in northern Wisconsin flows over a series of rocks, as a small rapids, created for fish habitat. The shoreline is not quite in full autumn, which works great for this image.
The boulder is lit by the morning sunshine. That wasn’t what first captured my attention.
Does the boulder’s reflection draw you into the scene?
Do the vertical lines of the reflections from the shore hold your gaze, with the colors working together in the scene?
As your eyes view the image from left to right, do you sense the image “speeding up”, as the water exits the scene?
