Moore had been looking forward to several weeks of photography at Belltrees in the Upper Hunter Valley. Unfortunately it rained. Weather conditions forced me to look for subject matter not dependent on bright sunshine. The river presented reflections, rocks and driftwood as in this image in which horizontal logs create a counterpoint to the curve of gathering froth on the slack water.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
