This has been a very rainy spring and summer time!  In fact, I can't remember a year that rivals this one for rainfall!    Consequently, the streams and full and flowing fast!  This little creek that isn't too far from my home is now more like a small river, moving swiftly!    I was particularly interested in depicting the movement of water, and also how the light and shadows played upon it.  In some areas it was quiet water, in some areas it was moving with quite rapidly and with froth and foam.
The colors of the water changed as well, from a muddy brown in the sun to a cooler reflective color in the shade!  All so interesting to the eye and a challenge to capture!

You did a beautiful job of it, Helen. The creek right behind my house is a mud color too...I'm loving the rain this year! I never tire of it.
