11.14.2014 Three Rocks Cascade

Here’s one more from my visit to Atherton Brook on November 1.  This was actually the first image I took on the trip but only just processed this morning.  I was searching for “Egg Rock” and thought I found it tucked down there in the water, but now I am not that sure.  Egg or not, I like the arrangement of the three rocks and the flow of the water along with the view of upstream.  I experimented with this as a monochrome also, but prefer it in living color, muted though it is.

    It deserves colour and I would describe it as natural rather than muted.


  2. Lottie Nevin says:

    I agree with Andrew. It looks very natural. All that is missing is the damp, mulch smell of the woods.

    I guess I’m just not artsy enough. Black and white photos of nature don’t touch me like this one does. I may admire them, or be amazed by them, but I don’t respond to them in the same way — unless, of course, the black-and-whiteness is natural, as in snowbound landscapes. This is lovely.


    • Not everyone finds Black & White to be enjoyable. I was more interested in color photography from the start and still prefer it. But some subjects do seem more appropriate for monochrome when the color is significantly a distraction to what is being expressed. I have a lot to learn for sure, but am enjoying beginning to see that way and the different requirements for making a good print.

      It shan’t be long until some of those natural snowbound landscapes appear here. Maybe even Monday according to latest weather guess.

    Your description of why you like it works perfectly for me. Great shot. Successful on the first one? Never happens to me.


    • First shot, but with a lot of looking around first. Most often I shoot into the composition as I analyze and refine things to eliminate what is not necessary. I did try that and ended up liking this better than the ones that removed some of the distant view.


  5. Beautiful image, love the perspective used to capture the photo.


  6. Let’s hear it for muted color. I’m tempted to say that a brook is a brook is a brook, based on the similar features they share, but Atherton Brook seems to have taken on quite a presence for you.

    That’s quite a large depth of field you achieved here.


    • There are couple that i visit which are blessed with a variety of noteworthy cascades and waterfalls, Atherton Brook being one.
      I was disappointed that the foreground didn’t take well with the compression of downsizing, but the whole scene does work well in the full rez.


  7. me too. Even with muted color it still moves the eye along. Is this the Egg that is referred to in The Great Gatsby?
