Blue Water Fins

Took these pictures at a river that is only about a 10-minute walk from home. The river is relatively clean, but like so many rivers in Japan, some household water waste spills in this very river. I am hesitant to let me dog play in this river. 

I wish there was some public information that was easily accessible on my iPhone so that I could check the water quality. Dogs and water aside, I love how the light from dimming sky played on the water surface.

Like the band of gold stretching along the water's edge.

When I saw these ripples, I was suddenly reminded of the Loch Ness Monster or the movie Jaws.

My apologies for the over saturation and HDR effect applied to this pix.

Like how parts of the carp stick out of the water. I wonder if fish can sense that a part of their anatomy is sticking out of the water or not?

Like how the water meanders from right to left and back again as it courses down the river bed obstructed by small sandbars and vegetation.

Wonder if anyone can guess the point of this shot? I was aiming for the width of the water cascading over the small dam while catching the reflection of the waterworks shed reflecting in the upper-left corner.

Wish I knew what part of the camera setup makes the water look like flowing metal or jelly-like.
