Confluence

The popular fishing spot along the Wilson River is actually the spot where two forks of the river meet. The fishermen told me they are the north and east forks, but just up the road the sign indicates Devil's Lake Fork Wilson River, so there are some local variations. I would have liked to photograph this confluence from a wider angle, but I just got my sensor cleaned last week, so I wasn't about to switch lenses in a heavy rain! Yesterday's and today's photos are both taken with my zoom lens, but today's scene is very close to where I was standing so it's a zoomed in view of the meeting of the rivers. Laminar flow meets turbulent flow.  It's a great river merge, I think, with the two forks balanced in size and flow.
