Selection of August 2021: The Power of Water by Alexey Korolyov

The power of water by Alexey Korolyov

This image is a visual tribute to the power of water element. It was made on a section of a river with a turbulent current. A mill used to work here a long time ago. Debris from ancillary structures remaining in the water creates obstacles to the flow. As a result, a powerful roll was formed with strong waves and swirls.

To convey a sense of dynamics and power of the water flow, I used slow shutter speed that is supremely well fit for such scenes. Red reflections in the image are from a dilapidated brick mill standing on the side of the river. I managed to get rich color here because the mill was illuminated by the intense light of the setting sun.
