The river level had finally dropped enough to expose this pothole. I had been watching it all summer waiting for my chance to work with it.
Along the bank up above a maple was turning gold and scarlet so I used a few of the leaves to make a contrary spiral. It is "contrary" because it goes against the waterflow.
The grey banding in the rock is a natural formation... I may work with that later, but for now, it's all about the pothole !
This is the first of two leaf pieces I did with this location.. I'll post the second one later this week.
A different angle reveals how deeply the river carved this one. Not surprising since it is underwater most of the year.
