Braided rivers make fascinating subjects. I usually try and find a high point (in this case Double Hill), and time it to be there when the light is interesting. The result can be spectacular – like this image of the braided Wilberforce and Rakaia river beds with snow-capped Southern Alps in the background.

Camera settings Canon 5D mk2, 1/15 sec at F14.
