The Aune Ascendancy


Photo Information
The River Aune is a delightful river with a wild, old-world atmosphere for much of it's journey through Dartmoor National Park. It rises in the bleak and desolate Aune Head Mires on Ryder's Hill 460 metres above sea level, in fact it's name is from the Old Norse 'audhn' (meaning "from a bleak and desolate place").



To think of the flowing water as being the sole essence of the Auhn, is somewhat short-sighted. This as with all rivers, brooks, burns, bournes & streams I feel are the sum of all the surrounding elements, as well as the water. The rich diversity of species of lichen, fungi, mosses, ferns, grasses, wild flowers, beeches, oaks, rowan, holly, the fish, the insects, the water-carved burnished granite ledges & boulders - all amplify the mindful celebration of this place and other characterful stretches of flowing water. Then of course the weather, the light & shade all play their part in the theatre of these places.


“There is another alphabet, whispering from every leaf, singing from every river, shimmering from every sky.”

Nice, sounds nice too, like your description.

Excellent choice of viewpoint, shutter speed, DOF and stitching software to create a virtual gateway through time and space to a beckoning green place.

I'd love to see a copy hung poster size in an installation with a recording of the sounds of the water and wildlife.

Respect!
