04.01.2019 Return to Holland Glen

The rain arrived later than I expected yesterday and I was able to spend a little time wading in the brook. The water is flowing hard and there were many cascades to enjoy, but most had a lot of fallen branches and twigs and cleaning them seemed a bit treacherous.  This wasn’t too bad and makes for a clean and simple composition.

I liked the various angles of the cascade and thought about focusing in closer to isolate them but decided I liked the image better in context.

  1. Cleaning up a site before photographing it is an aspect of nature photography that rarely seems to get talked about. I’ve often had to remove a bag, a can, a wrapper, a cup, a container, etc.

    • My attitude is that if something could be moved naturally, or is trash, then I will do it. I won’t move anything, such as rocks, that could cause a critter, large or small, to be disturbed. It’s a reality that we almost can’t tread upon the earth without disturbing something, springtails etc, but to actually change the environment is a no-no. If a beer can is somewhere that I cannot get to then the clone tool and healing brush come into play. It’s a fine line between cleaning and making a site look too pristine though.

    The various streams of water seem loosely braided. It’s quite attractive, and it’s fun to think of Nature ‘doing her hair’ somewhat casually.

  4. Love the falls/cascades/brooks that are so plentiful in you area. I simply can not imagine the abundance of running water, but it is sure provides you with wonderful photo opportunities.
