Monochrome Monday #23: Heading For The Falls Redux


"Going Down"
Linville River, NC - February 2001 (Click to embiggen)

It begins to be rough.
Fantastic light, looks like a silver crumpled sheet. Great effect. I miss just the sound.

Soon as I laid eyes on this I felt a pull in one direction as if beng swept downstream. Looking forward to the journey. Nice grouping of light in the centre.

Nice. I'm partial to fast moving water in rivers. Rivers and valleys. Lots of those here too. I love it.

I like the choppy reflections in the water that gives it such drastic textures. Cool!
