  1. Great composition, Linda. And the orange color is unexpected. I’m going through an “orange phase” myself. Maybe it’s typical for this time of year.

    • Thanks, Ken. It’s funny how quickly I can break with the one-third, one-third convention. I never considered anything other than putting this crack right up the middle of the composition. That orange, BTW, is the iron oxide (rust) that iron bacteria precipitated out of the river water when the water level was higher.

  2. Distinctly striking, and texturally very rough.

    • Thank you, Adrian. The next big rain we get, expected later this week, will sweep all this texture down to Lake Erie (one of the Great Lakes).

  3. Compositional rules are there to be broken! I like the way that line divides the image. The texture and patterning feels akin to paint flaking.

    • Glad this composition sits right with you, Andy. Some things just have to be in the middle of the frame.

  5. Rust – it just keeps on giving! 😉 I like the crack right down the middle, too.
