This is an image taken of a tall waterfall from the back side. The waterfall is in the lobby of a hotel in St. Louis. This is a three floor tall structure with water pouring over the front and running down the glass surface into a black stone pool at the bottom. The light from the lobby shines through the glass and running water and gives these unique colors when you shoot through the water fall from behind. To the human eye it appears as a clear moving wall of water but the camera picks up the reflected and refracted light in the waves of water. The shapes you see is the flow of water over the glass
Taken straight from camera, as is, no edit.
