06.02.2016 Another view of Murphy Falls

Archiving images is not a lot of fun.  It’s even less so when you let months go by without doing the keywording and backing up.  Fortunately I have several cards which allows me to put it off as long as the cards have not been re-formatted.  Well, that time is running out and I am trying, once again, to catch up.  Don’t be like Steve.

One of the fun things is discovering an image that hasn’t been processed yet and finding it to be good enough to work on and share. This is one from a different angle of my favorite little waterfall.  The water is running low now as we’ve had very little rain and the brooks are at their lower summer levels currently.  So it is nice to remember this view from last autumn.

  1. Glad you found this one. A real beauty. I like the silver tones of the water and contrasting oranges and browns. I think we’re in for some rain on Sunday. Let’s not hope for too much before then as we expect a concrete delivery this afternoon! By the way, I’ve been meaning to ask you where do you get your prints processed? I’m thinking of having an image printed for framing. I thought I might drop it off at the local gallery to see what they had to say. Reply only when you have time and do so via email if you prefer.

    • Concrete for? Foundation?

      Thanks. I don’t think I am done with this spot yet. There are so many possibilities not to mention the personal attachment I have. I do my own printing with the exception of something larger than my printer is able to handle. I just use someone local for that, but it has been a few years. A friend of mine who has a gallery in Northern Maine does printing for hire. http://www.markpicard.com/post-processing-print-services/ I’d consider making a print for you. If you wish, shoot me an email and we’ll discuss it.

    That is a good one from last fall. Such smooth flow lines.

    Now, get back to work archiving and organizing. ➰

  4. Murphy Falls looks so pretty and the gorgeous fall leaves make the photo. I always think of your Murphy every time I see the word Murphy.

  5. I’m always impressed with the way leaves can cling to the rocks in a waterfall even with the water flowing by.

    Suddenly I remembered some of the words from the 1936 song “These Foolish Things,” with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz and music by Jack Strachey:

    Oh, how the ghost of you clings;
    These foolish things remind me of you.

    • Yes, for me there are reminders everywhere. That will always be true even when we have a new dog to love.

      It is surprising that the leaf can remain. I guess the downward pressure of the water flowing over is strong enough to overcome the pushing of the water that meets the leaf’s edge.

    I remember those leaves. They’re still beautiful, and add so much. I’m glad you didn’t show us a black and white version. I prefer the warmth of the leaves.

    • It would have been a shame to lose that warm feeling with the cool feel of the water which is why I did not convert. I might have at other times, but chose not to and I think it was the correct choice. Glad that you agree, Linda.
