Waters colliding

This is the picture I really wanted to post, but I thought it wouldn't make any sense without the context provided by my other picture. Since the contest rules only allow one picture per answer, I posted two answers.

I waited for a while until the swirls of the rivers made a particularly interesting pattern. This was also deliberately the area of maximum polarization from where I was standing on the bridge. A polarizing filter cancelled out most of the reflection off the water, making the Millers river look almost black.

Millers River meets Connecticut River

6 Oct 2011, Erving/Gill Massachusetts.

This picture was taken looking downriver (south) from the French King Bridge across the Connecticut River, between Erving and Gill Massachusetts. The Millers River enters the Connecticut immediately downstream from the bridge, left of this picture. The interesting swirls and patterns are caused by the clear dark tannin-laden water of the Millers River mixing with the silty waters of the Connecticut.
