Since early in my exploration of landscape photography, I have been attracted to images that feature mud. Something about the unexpected but undeniable beauty really got to me, and I new that glacial silt had a similar potential to that of the canyon mud of the Southwest.
This particular patch of silt was layered and rippled by the Herbert River during a period of higher flow. Normally a "silty" gray, the ground borrowed this color from a marvelous sky on the horizon.
