06.23.2015 Water in motion

It’s been a little while since I posted a water image.  We had some good rain on Sunday which provided some nice flow in the local brooks.  This is one little scene from the Middle Branch of the Swift River rolling towards the Quabbin and someone’s shower or glass of water in Boston.  🙂

    The rain headed your way is compliments of Iowa from yesterday. We are finished with it. Enjoy.

  2. That swirling dark water looks fierce. Nice rendition of the falls. I’m glad you are getting some rain. I wish the rain here would stop for at least several weeks.

  3. That’s an appealing abstraction with a good sense of circular movement around the dark area located a third of the way down and to the right from the upper left corner.

    It looks like a mud flood — although I will say our brown water never could compete with this. Ours just lazes around. With no elevation to work with, all it can do is spread.

    Even if you hadn’t said so, this is clearly recognizable as water, but there’s quite a resemblance to fur, too. If you imagine a long-haired cat, that middle section begins to look like a paw with claws.

    A fascinating combination of blurred motion and momentarily-still eddies, a perfect exposure to highlight both. The slight sepia expression adds to its mystery and appeal. As for the cat’s paw, it only takes a little imagination, once it’s nudged, and there it is! Too bad you couldn’t add a short audio clip to accompany this.

    • I don’t know why I didn’t think to pull out my phone and make a video of this. I guess that I can use the excuse of a precarious perch but really sometimes I just am in a zone.


  6. Oooo, I like this one 🙂
