The Thin Line between Calm and Chaos

The idea was to capture the exact moment in which the water passed over the rocks and generated those "circumferences" in the well on the right side. After a few unsuccessful attempts I got the moment I was looking for!

I really like the contrast between the rough waters on the left side and the stillness on the right side, they are almost like two worlds interconnected by that small waterfall that would be like a connecting link.

This one really appeals, Álvaro - for me, more than your fine panorama of this scene. Apart from the features you mention, with which I agree, I particularly find the simple, stark geometry of the small hermitage against nature's chaotic splendour compelling. It reminds me of humanity's frail grip on survival, how puny our works are compared with the power of nature..

I'm glad you like it!
Thank you very much for your words!
