After showing my previous Balmedie photo I took two days ago (last photo I uploaded to Ephotozine) to my fiancee she said it was surprising I did not take the photo from in the stream as that is what I usually do! (nice to know she pays attention!) But I did not have my wellies that morning.

This morning I set out with wellie clad feet and knew the exact photo I wanted. I set the camera up on the tripod and wedged the feet deep into the sandy bed of the stream. The camera was well below the level of the bank giving the unique perspective I was after. In the natural world I do not think there is anything as elegant as flowing water. I made the most of this flowing elegance using the all of the "S" shape created by the stream. Compositionaly the two aspects I tried hardest on was having the sand cliff eddge coming from the corner bottom left and keeping the far away curve within the frame on right handside.

Definite elegance! I like the perspective of the bank being above the POV.

Love the composition and feel that this one has even more visual impact than the last upload. Excellent.

This is deja vu as I've just commented on this on "another photo sharing site". Love the s shaped stream and the patterns in the water.

Love the elegant sweep of the water as it curves towards the sun.
