    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
    pampas
    soaked reeds
    breed winter rot
    and that is not
    so bad
    eh?

  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. 🙂

  19. arlingwoman says:

    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.

  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. 🙂
