Abstract landscape (Mayflies)

I spent a spare hour yesterday sitting at a riverbank where kingfishers are known to ply their trade. None showed, but I did witness an explosion of mayflies. Too far away and the light too gloomy ever to get something sharp, I decided to go for a shot that was more abstract and I think the almost luminous green of the river flora works well with the framing shadows and the flakes of white provided by the flies.

  1. I was sitting at a riverside pub last year when they hatched, they were everywhere, including my drink!
