Quiet Creek Becomes Swollen River After Rain
When I was out photographing spring flora a week or so ago, I took this picture of Rock Creek. It rained heavily for two or three days straight previous to this photograph. I thought it was a nice combination of this week's challenge: Smooth / Rough.
Then on Friday, I was out taking pictures in East Potomac Park. The wind was brisk and whipping up the water on the Potomac River. I snapped this picture and liked its sort of Rothko-esque quality. Even more, I liked the roughness of the grass, the pollen in rough, tangled piles on the walk, the rustiness of the railings, and the turbulent water. Put another way: rough all around!
