Great sense of movement in the flat bits of the water (and clearly so in the non-flat bits)
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

High quality, I can't think of anything I don't like about this shot, it just leaps out from the screen.

Thanks very much Bill It's a steep & slippy scramble getting to this point of the gorge, loads of groundwater 'run-off' - on shiny granite, with big drops down to the river. Worth it though to stand on a narrow promontory in a dog-leg bend of the river and gaze into the gorge from this angle.

Thank you very much for your generous comments David It's an inspiring place to stand and gaze at moving water, trying to contemplate the deep-time over which the river carved through the plutonic rocks.

The way you have arranged those mossy rocks and milky flow is masterful. One of your poets must surely have something to say on the subject Phil.
