    • Thank you, Ken. I love it when the leaves stack up like this.

  3. A very satisfying curve of current – I like the colors, and composition. How many times have we seen leaves caught in the water in Fall? It’s one of those everyday occurrences that we don’t pay enough attention to – and you caught it perfectly. Somehow this image conveys the essence of the season (maybe that’s because it’s been raining here so much?). 🙂

  4. I’ve just been doing some community work on a stream close to our house where the leaves are falling fast and getting trapped against a boulder and accumulate like layers of papyrus – just like in your image. Sadly I didn’t take my camera with me – my hands were in long rubber gloves and I was not a pretty sight. I love the gentle curve of the current in this, Linda.

    • Thanks, Andy. I like “like layers of papyrus.” It’s interesting that the leaves smash up against each other in such an orderly way, rather than into an amorphous mass. I’m sure a physicist could tell us why this happens.

      • I guess it’s all about the way the current wraps them round the obstruction – it does a very pretty job of it.
