    What beautiful color and texture!

  2. cindy knoke says:

    So similar to sea grass.

  3. Alice says:

    ‘Going with the flow.’ The snow frosting adds so much to your art work.

  4. shoreacres says:

    I’m as taken with the stopped stones as with the grass; they seem to be a sign of a higher and faster flow that bent the grasses.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      This river rises quickly with any significant rainfall, and fortunately the banks are high, so there is seldom flooding. High water pushed the grass into neat mounds and I liked the dusting of snow on the top of the rusty grass. Very wintery!

  5. This would make a nice painting.

  6. Vicki says:

    A beautifully balanced composition of bent grass heads and gently swirling water. Sometimes its the most simple of subjects that make the best images. 🙂

    Gorgeous photo Eliza!

    Wonderful shot! There is beauty everywhere in nature.

    wet grass
    soaked reeds
    breed winter rot
    and that is not
    so bad

  10. Almost looks like a nest full of eggs! 😊

  11. Tina says:

    Nicely captured photo, Eliza–lots of movement in that shot!

  12. Kris P says:

    Lovely, even when brown!

  13. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Beautiful earthy colours Eliza and I love the way the stones have arranged themselves! 🧡

  14. Debbie says:

    These look like abandoned hula skirts! Perhaps the dancers stripped and made their way into that frosty-looking water?!?

  15. Nice composition, Eliza! I drove by the river today, there is still a lot of open water.

  16. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Love the colours, so muted yet striking

  17. Dale says:

    How beautiful is nature? Very, I say! Thank you for sharing such a lovely image!

  18. Nice shot, but it looks kind of sad like life has kind of wore it down. I bet it will perk up when spring rolls around. 🙂

    I like the colors here and would like to see the river in flood, combing the grasses all in one direction.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Lisa. I don’t mind the ‘little’ floods, the turbulence can be exciting, but the few ‘big’ floods we’ve had over the years are downright scary!

      • arlingwoman says:

        Yes. Roiling water full of trees, telephone poles and dead farm animals is alarming. I hope there aren’t many of those!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Only two storms come to mind: Hurricane Irene (trees, gas tanks, dead animals!) and one year where we had a rapid warm up with rain after very cold weather where the ice was a foot thick. It broke into big chunks, creating ice dams… if you fell in, you’d be a goner!

    Chilly and beautiful 🙏🏼

    Hi, beautiful photos. I live on a one-acre plot of rural land in south India; I was browsing around for blogs with a theme of nature photography and stumbled upon yours. Looking forward to viewing your work. Kind regards.

  22. dianaed14 says:

    usually we find something to photograph

  23. Isha says:

    The colours here are so gorgeous!

    Wish you a very happy New Year, Eliza! ❤️

  24. The “River” in your title somehow reminded me of Paul Simon’s “Peace Like a River.”

  25. Well seen and photographed, Eliza. Nice touch of snow an more than we have around these parts.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Steve. We still have pockets left, but most has melted. Colder temps next week might bring more, but I would settle for a glimpse of the sun, I miss it!

  26. So beautiful, calming and peaceful… Love the bits of frost…

  27. Your capture is like a painting…

    Selkies, letting their hair blow in the surface breezes. 🙂
