Reflections of boat rigging on the water of the River Tawe at Swansea – photographed from moment to moment on the same spot. See video of the patterns in motion below (try clicking the HD enable button, and slow the timing down to 0.5 with the speed icon next to it).

  1. Great eye for this sort of photo opportunity. How many times have we walked past this and not spotted it ourselves?! Wonderful economy in composition too. Lovely work.

  2. Yes, it is hypnotic, and your eyes just want to follow the lines, and it’s effortless to do so. There really is something in these images and I don’t know what, but it is beautiful and unusual.

  3. Thanks, RH. The process you imagine sounds a lot like old-fashioned “marbling” which produces such a variety of patterns on paper (used mostly for bookbinding in the 19th century).
