Default Flooded Stones In Säve River

Or perhaps rocks is the right word.

As a fly fisherman, those images make me want to get my waders and rod and wade in to try my luck. As MVASteve said it is hypnotic watching and listening to water flowing. So much so that catching a fish while on a river doesn't seem to matter.

Regards

I agree, hypnotic for sure. Great balance between highlights and midtones.

Friends,

Thank you all, for viewing and the comments. I have this place of mine by the river "Säveån". Can sit there for hours. Used to do some fishing, with sinking flies. Wasn't very lucky (skilled) though

Exchanged rod and other equipment for cameras; haven't caught any fish though

Torgny

Just upstreams and downstreams the location in this picture are good places with enough room for fly fishing, Want to show you a couple of more boulder pictures, too

Hi Torgny

What a great series of water. I agree with several comments - "hypnotic" and as spy wrote, great exposure control all round.

The first photo presents those lovely little patterned ripples, which I watched often as a child (and sometimes as an adult... should do moreso!). Nice.

Photo 2 - the "texture" of the water is magic here, part of it gives me the impression it's like jelly and I could cut through it with a knife, other parts burbling like a kettle. So interesting.

Thanks for photo 3. I'm not patient enough (or interested in fishing) to be a great fan of that sport, but I have some friends who are. So thanks for sharing your "catch" of photo 3, it shows another aspect of your Save river! cheers.

Paul

Paul,

I'm happy you follow this thread. Yes, patterns, symmetry are important, I think, in nature photography. When we are visually alert it's possible to see them everywhere

You know, there were 2-300 exposures on the cards, from that day. Some came out decently. Each man has his own taste; I like this picture myself. Thank you for viewing. The green reflections in the water depends on heavy green branches right above
