Water patterns

A riffle in a stream:

The riffle was just before a small cascade – the intersecting ripples caught my eye.

  1. This is wonderful, for two reasons. First is the sheer beauty: the colors, the intricate patterns. Beyond that, this is the first time I’ve seen another image of ripples crossing like this and creating geometric shapes. I captured the same dynamic last year, although my water created shapes that were more square, and looked like chocolate-covered caramels.

    Water’s as fascinating as fire: always different, always the same. Now that I’ve seen this, I’ll watch more closely. What I thought was a one-off probably is a more common phenomenon that I can spot again, if I just look.
