05.11.2016 Atop the small waterfall on Buffam Brook

Here is a nice little cascade that is just hinted at in my earlier post.  It’s actually a little tighter than it appears which is caused by the use of 24mm opening the distance a bit.  I liked the inclusion of the smooth clear water with the fallen angular tree.

  1. That little cascade is actually quite beautiful. How many brooks have you photographed thus far or have I asked that previously? Just make a guesstimate. Have you cataloged them?

    Very nice Steve. Looks like a great location. Did you use any filters?

    It’s funny — I feel as though there are two photos here rather than one. I like the top half (the woods and the placid water) and I like the cascade, with only a bit of the woods showing at the top. (Hooray for the ability to scroll.) I wonder if the sense of two images is due partly to the juxtaposition of the absolutely smooth water with the cascade. In any event, it’s an interesting image, and the light is lovely.

    • I thought about a more limited view of one or the other, but decided I liked the entirely, showing the source of the waterfall and took the angle that I did to be sure the tipping tree was seen completely. I also considered avoiding the rotted stump, but didn’t want to truncate the flow from the waterfall.
      I think part of the sense you are getting, along with the difference in water, is from the varying light. The woods are warmer from the filtered rising sun and the foreground in cooler shade.


  4. Another nice contribution to your studies in moving water. I like the contrast between still and moving in this one.
