River at Campamento Italiano, PN Torres del Paine

Same place as this photograph, one day later, a different feel. Everywhere I travelled, I felt compelled to photograph flowing water. Here in the mountains of Chile, so similar to Aotearoa in so many ways, the compulsion felt even stronger.

that water looks like it would be really cold (was it cold?).

but i would have to take my shoes off and dip them in there anyway i think!

Leonie, the water was glacial in every sense.

There is nothing as compelling as moving water. Something innate in us, perhaps because it is safe(r) to drink, vital. But there has to be something else.

Zhoen, that's exactly right. I don't know what it is about moving water that affects me so strongly, but surely it must in some way be the product of our evolution.

Beatiful photograph.
Moving water is always fascinating, and I've often wanted to live close to it. Now, thanks to the endless downpours of the English summer and autumn I'm almost there!

Thank you, RR. Good luck with that weather!
