After shooting yesterday’s sunrise, I drove through Shutesbury and stopped by Dean Brook. The waterfall was wild and had too much water flowing too strongly to really capture anything different from the usual…which in itself is very nice. So I stopped a bit upstream and looking into the woods noticed a possible composition. Once I got closer I saw the different directions water was flowing and made some overall images of the cascade. But I haven’t yet decided if the angle I had to shoot from works because I didn’t have my boots and was restricted to the edge instead of wading in. Maybe this weekend for a revisit.
But…I really liked the confluence of the flows and the splash at the bottom so made a few exposures of different duration. This was my favorite of the bunch and I think is different from any other motion shot I’ve made to this point.
When I visualized this I thought it would make a nice black and white, which I still may do, but once processing I saw that there was some reflection of the sky and a bit of tannin brown which I am enjoying so kept the color.
