Excellent result from a scene that many people wouldn't even look twice at.
As Tony says, the square format goes well with it.

i would echo David's comment above, most people would not have "seen" the image let alone captured it with such artistic flare and photographic competence; it is so creative reminding me of a "Camera Forum " I attended many years ago called "Learning to see".
Work that is deserved of high commendation.

A very well executed shot! The shutter speed seems to have been spot on here.

Thanks very much for your generous and encouraging comments Drobbia😎 Hypnotized once again by the details of the journeys of water over stone. It's a fleeting glimpse of an interminable story steeped in deep time... rocks formed under long vanished mountains of the Variscan Orogeny 350 million years ago being worn by ice and water, slowly transported grain by grain to the sea. A visual verse of the poetry of the earth 😊

Thanks very much for your generous comments 😎 It's maybe a result of reading David Ward's 'Landscape Within' and gazing at the latter works of JMW Turner that my visual antennae notice such things as that wave, but I don't think I can turn the switch off for noticing many abstractions occurring in nature 😁

Thanks very much for your munificent comments and enthusiasm 😊 I thoroughly enjoyed immersing my senses in the making of this image: wandering through the shallows and feeling the current; hearing the myriad tones; the rain stick swooshing of the pea gravel underfoot; the unctuous aroma of ancient woodland and the light gilding the rocks beneath the tongue of the rapids. I think, that for me at least, that it's the immersive experiences that helps one to 'see' rather than just 'look' into the landscape. My 'Metaphysics and the Landscape' Trilogy of blog posts on my website attempts to explore such matters further😎

Thanks very much Michael 😎 It's always a bit of a challenge with dappled light on whitewater rapids but its getting easier with practice 😃

Thanks very much Karlo for your encouraging and enthusiastic comments 😎 I visualized it as a square format as soon as I noticed the forms and dynamic range, it seemed the right way to share my thoughts. Chiaroscuro tones & myriad textures that made me smile and that compelled me on a visceral level to say "this could work as a photograph..."

Striking shot... Not colours you'd generally associate with water at all... Bravo...

Thanks very much indeed 😎 Late afternoon sunlight illuminating the bedrock made some intriguing opportunities in the valley.
