Branching out across the floodplains are the tributaries that run from the river and eventually meet the oceans and seas. As they spread across the floodplains, they get smaller and smaller, as the water flowing into them lessens until they have all but disappeared. I found this particular branching tributary particularly interesting because it lacked the fine details I have so often seen on the floodplains. This is due to the vegetation that surrounds the branches - some bushes and a good layering of grass which prevents the detailed lines from forming. Patterns in nature are always different and affected by their surroundings and it is this ever changing pattern that I look for.
