Oak leaf in lava foam

Oak leaf in lava foam

Race Brook Falls Trail, Southwest Massachusetts.

This eddy current of foam was right at the bottom of the trail at the first Race Brook crossing, just after a small bit of turbulence. It was the most amazing piece of foam I’ve ever seen and I took numerous pictures as the leaf spun around, caught in the the eddy current.

Even though this image was done with the Ricoh GR’s high contrast black and white filter, this foam really did look like lava, it was unusual and fascinating and if we hadn’t been on our way further up the trail I’d have stood there for a lot longer watching it change form.
