Claw

I was originally drawn to this small area of water by the zig-zag pattern of the flow over the rocks, but after working on it I think the main feature is the lines of water which seem to me to be like a bear's claws, with the rock being the paw (admittedly, a somewhat mutated, multi-clawed bear....).

 

I've tried to emphasise the look of brush strokes by processing this to bring out the texture in the water, which immediately looked rather like fur or hair (to continue the bear theme).
