This was shot from the front the same day. Not this particular shot, but another is one of my all time favorites, it's on my site.

You know I was actually sitting in my car, waiting for some people to leave, and eating a snack with the AC cooling me down after getting fairly warmed up at my last stop, and saw the side angle. I was fascinated by the view of the water, and wanted to try and capture it. I think I got close anyway, but with a slightly different view still. Anyway, like you, I like the water flow in the side shot.
