07.16.2015 Another from Amethyst Brook

As is often the case, when visiting a spot I explore beyond the obvious feature and that is the case here and in previous posts from this location in Pelham, MA.  I have yet to follow Amethyst Brook to its source, but shall do that one of these days.  As with Dean Brook, there are many compositions of cascades and waterfalls.  While not of the spectacular category, they are all a treat to visit and enjoy some escape from the noise of the world and get lost in their own sounds.

  1. I just came across this Ansel Adams quotation:

    “To the complaint, ‘There are no people in these photographs,’ I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.”

    Adams’s quotations always are good, but in this case, there is a “person” in the photo. I saw her immediately, facing the falls. See the braided hair, or a garland around her head? The arms crossed behind her back? The long, flowing skirt?

    Instead of the Lady of the Lake, you’ve captured the Lady of the Brook!

  3. I like how you and Linda describe the woodland fairy. It surely would be the perfect place to photograph a young lady dressed in white, looking down at the water with her feet in the rushing water. And photograph that scene in B&W for drama.

    Anyhoo this is a very nice brook but I’m waiting to see a photo of a steam without the blurring effect of the water.
