Liquid Textures

This is a shot of Kanduce Creek from two summers ago. It's not far from where I live and spots like this are easy to reach from the parking lot on the highway that runs along the shore of Lake Superior. Most of the streams and rivers that flow into Superior carry a lot of minerals and other flavors with them, turning the water to various shades of brown. People think it looks like root beer. It was about mid-afternoon when I stopped at this particular location. The sun was high and coming down through the treetops in shafts of bright light, turning the water to caramel, with tints of green from the mossy bottom showing through. I shifted around on the bank, right at the edge of the water until I was satisfied that I had the best angle. This is a handheld shot, again with the Canon A85 point and shoot.
