When the end of summer nears and the rain stops falling consistently the rivers dry up a little. Here you can see that the water has moved into the deeper channels of the river and the flora has moved into the newly available territory. Honestly this is the only tree in the hole area and I thought it was in a neat position to shoot up stream. So I got fairly low with a portrait composition, tried to follow the rule of 3rds and this is what I came up with.
