One way to eliminate the constant din of the world is to spend some time enveloped in the sound of moving water.
The lichens and rocks add a nice contrast to the thready water.
I have thought of this in B&W but would hate to lose the lovely color of the moss and lichens.
Might be good for tinnitus, as well. Sometimes I notice mine, sometimes not as much. Very interesting tones throughout this one, I’m guessing early morning light? Very nice.

Thanks, Todd. I almost mentioned drowning out the tinnitus, but have remarked on it so often I didn’t want to seem like a whiner. 🙂 It definitely does a nice job of masking it. If I get lost in what I am doing it disappears into the background, but quiet, especially at night, really lets it roar.
Yes, almost all my images are early morning.
Your image reminds me of lines from a Wendell Berry poem:
“The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
Absolutely. The more impediments in the way of rocks the more pleasing the cascades.I just pulled Wendell Berry off my shelf the other day.
Great pic. Looks as if the snow that you’ve been getting has made this stream- full steam.
Some commented that the noise of a stream might be good for tinnitus. 🙂 I surely wish that were true, I’ve the flu- very ill from the evil disease. My ears are virtually ringing off the walls since I became ill last Thursday evening.
I do recommend sitting by a waterfall, real or artificial, to make the noise go away once your flu has gone away.
I will give it a try and thank you.
What a lovely, balanced view, in every sense.
It was naturally out of balance at capture, Melissa…the stream and edges gave a sense of going downhill so I had to straighten it beyond what it was really like.
Oh! It just goes to show…
