River cliff and slip-off slope

Classic geographical features of lowland meandering rivers. Erosion from fast moving water on one bank forming a small cliff, and deposition on the other forming a small beach. The overhanging turf illustrates the undercutting that has occurred. The river’s current as it passes through the meander curve is evident from the ripples and white water. It is also clear that this is a sequence with the next meander loop visible.

A good example of how a little knowledge makes a saleable image – even if the photography couldn’t be more straightforward. This is the River Deben, near Ufford, Suffolk, England, in its freshwater stage shortly before becoming tidal. I’m assuming that this is for a textbook, licensed through Alamy.
