A confluence is the merger or meeting of two or more objects (or subjects) that seem to inseparably bind their respective forces or attributes into a point of junction. That's the wikipedia definition. In the few seconds that I snapped the above pictures, I felt I had captured the soul of this definition. I remember that my heart was racing and I was praying that my trembling hands didn't mess up the focus. In less than a minute the symmetry, the synergy had vanished. The delight of being present for the transient gift of beauty remains forever.
