512 – The River Sings

After the huge amount of work that I put into yesterday’s Photoshop tutorial (I actually finished it tonight at 2am), and due to the fact that I have taken no image at all today (the first time in what? A year??), I needed to resort to my TODO images.

This one is from my trip to Firenze, Italy, where I met Ted Byrne. I took it the morning we were shooting the sunrise at Il Duomo. This is river Arno, and although I had the image on my TODO list, I didn’t need to do anything at all.

Nikon D200, Nikon 18-200 VR at 200mm, f8 and 1/80s.

The Song of the Day is “The River Sings” from Enya’s gorgeous 2005 album “Amarantine“. See the video on YouTube.

  1. Perhaps the strength in this composition lies in my total inability to make any sense of it at all?

  2. Well, looking through the window that you have shown so masterfully here, you could have seen it every day 🙂

    There are oblique steps built into the river bed, for whatever reason. Maybe to slow down the water in the horizontal parts between. I don’t know. This is the water of the river falling down one such step.
