This scene is on the Wenatchee River. As luck would have it, just as I was taking the photo a large salmon rolled on the surface. It had come all the way up from the Pacific to spawn and then die just a short time after.

The work of art may have a moral effect, but to demand moral purpose from an artist is to make him ruin his work. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - 1832)

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is a society, where none intrudes, By the deep Sea, and music in its roar, I love not man less, but Nature more --Lord Byron

I love pure red when it appears in nature. And the black glass quality of the water enhances the reflection.

Great nature shot, and I can see some swirls in the water where something was moving. Was this picture modified to get them colours in the flowers? High marks, thanks for sharing this.
