Centripetal Force

Last week I was shooting leaf covered rocks in a stream in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire. I found a large pool of water off to one side of the stream that had rotating foam and leaves. The swirling leaves reminded me of planets in orbit around a star. The flow was pretty weak to the right of the center of the swirl, so I elected to extract out only this segment, which had the most interesting flow to the swirl.

I call this an “ILM” image - Intentional Leaf Movement. :grin:

I like these kinds of scenes. Six seconds gave you a beautiful swirl. The leaves at this slow speed add nice bits of orange.

A clever idea yielded a lovely image! It could almost be a hurricane shot from the ISS.

Clever title, too!
