White Wash

The water in this image is a small stream, the beginning of a river which gets bigger and bigger as it goes out to the estuary. Over time the minerals and sediment in the water will wear down these rocks and the white water will slow, eventually leading to a simple trickle deeper into the riverbed. This form of erosion is called Hydraulic Erosion.
