About This Image

The flume or raceway in an old dam next to a former gypsum mine/plaster factory. This dates to the 19th century, and was used to power the factory. The Oatka creek is a clear, placid trout stream in the summer, and this raceway carries the full flow of the creek, sometimes only a trickle. But in the early spring, snow melt fills the creek, moving rapidly to the Genesee River, and eventually Lake Ontario and the Atlantic Ocean.

The force and power of the water is well captured. The textures are pleasing. Great composition.
