03.04.2019 Amethyst Brook

I’ve posted images of a waterfall on Amethyst Brook several times.  It was totally covered in ice and snow yesterday and there wasn’t really a good composition.  So I crossed the road and bushwhacked along downstream and found a couple of things to photograph.

Seeing what’s happening below the ice is always a treat.  Maybe one day a fish will be looking up at me as in the Escher print . I’m thinking ice but fallen leaves are cool too.

Walking a little farther downstream I came across this cascade hopping over a fallen branch and framed nicely by the ice.  I made several images, this being my favorite.Snowfall today, about 4 inches so far, and it’s sticking to the trees.  If the wind stays away for a few hours maybe there’ll be some nice opportunities.

    The colors of the second photo appeal to me. I’ve become quite fond of blue and brown in any combination, and this combination is delightful. The ‘layered’ look of the cascades is pleasing, too.

    • I like the combination as well which why it is not in B&W. I only convert a few images to B&W as if there is any appreciable color, even subtle, I would prefer to keep it. I was hoping that the hop of the water over the branch would be captured and it took several experiments with shutter speed to get it. Even when reviewing on the LCD it is hard to tell for sure how successful it has been until viewing on the desktop.


  2. I can see why that second image appeals to you. It grabs me, too. The blue and brown that Linda mentioned are reasons for my liking the picture as well.

  3. It’s the top monochrome that grabs me. Mother nature makes her own abstracts. But it takes an eye to see them.

  4. I like both shots, but the 2nd appeals the most to me, it would make a great label for bottled spring water.
