06.07.2016 A brook runs through it

One of the rewarding things about visiting familiar places is when you see things in a different way.  It’s true of many subjects including flowers and landscapes.  In this case it’s about the water.

I’ve photographed Atherton Brook inside of Gate 15 of the Quabbin Watershed on many occasions and several of those images have appeared here.  That is true of this scene also, but I had not taken in the curve aspect seen here.  Seems obvious, but one time I looked at the wider picture and another the closer.  I think I’ve hit a happy medium here.

    I especially like the places where it seems as though the water’s a veil. In the immediate foreground, it’s as though we can look through the water to the rock beneath. It’s a great effect that adds a little something extra to the curve of the brook.


    • Ah, my images must be getting to you, Linda. I can remember that, when I first started showing my longer exposure water falls, you preferred more the stop action images over the soft veiled ones. I am sure though that the circumstances control what one is looking for so both can work at different times. There is another waterfall that I have photographed where you can see through and behind the water to mossy surfaces that add some colorful interest to the falls.


  4. However, always remember that it’s ok to ‘attack’ the ideas, but not the people presenting the ideas. Challenging stances and ideas are fine, but personal attacks add nothing to the conversation, and make you look like a jackass. Not what you want. Feel free to disagree, but don’t be disagreeable.
