Creating a splash!

I constantly marvel at the energy, the power of fast moving water.  I have in my garden a small  –  very small  –  pond with a correspondingly small fountain.  The fall of the cascade measures in inches  –  18 inches at most  –  and yet the ferocity with which it churns up an otherwise still surface is amazing and creates its own sense of drama.

Patterns from Pitsford

Looking back through pictures from my visit to Pitsford Reservoir I was attracted to the patterns formed by groups of birds.  The two images below have been processed in a manner that draws attention to the ‘pattern  dimension’.  The patterns have not been manipulated, just isolated.
