Swimming upstream

Swimming up stream

I put these three shots together a few days ago, and now that I am looking at them again I’m not sure I like it. These were taken at the Ballard Lochs in Seattle. The spirals are a series of ten metal sculptures installed near the fish ladder, and the fish were viewed through the underground windows just below. It was wonderful to be so close to these large fish, and watch how powerfully they swim.
