On a hike yesterday and I was so glad there was a bridge over this water. I wouldn't even let the dog drink it. The water was clear, but the ground was brilliant orange like rust Sony a57 & Sigma 8-16

Maybe this. Take a magnet with you next time to check.

Very pretty though! I bet you could get some beautiful shots up and down stream - especially with Autumn leaves.

I think the shot would be improved if the bridge were darker so the very beautiful colours all around around stood out more - the wood is very light. You could do it in PP - assuming you don't want to paint it.

the vacuumtreated (green) woodenbridge takes most of the view away from the water.
I think it is good for the bone structure when drinking this.
I wonder how this would look like even you could manage to get that bridge rotated 90 degrees and the stream flowing under it.

BTW I would not consider to drink this....
I like down to earth photography. :)

We have rivers like that over here. The brown-red colour comes from iron oxide in the ground. It is not poisonous i think.

most interiors of underground springs look like this as well because of the high amounts of iron-oxide (and possibly other metals) in underground spring water, its safe to drink if you dont do it everyday in high amounts, flavour is actually more enjoyable straight from the spring with some amount of iron vs filtered tap water, especially when it flows/falls and a higher amount of oxygen comes into the mix as well, but with any water going _outside_ a underground spring, always be wary of possibly high amounts of bacteria ofcourse,take the advise of the olden days; "don't drink too far from the spring".
