02.04.2020 Bear’s Den Falls with Cascade

Something to share from the archives while I sort through what I will save when transferring to the new desktop. I’ve moved most of the stuff I want to keep to an external drive and, of course, all my image files live off the main drives for safety. Several backups had to be copied to larger externals.  Funny how 1TB used to seem so large. It’s been a while since I upgraded the system so am hoping it goes smoothly. I am not worried about my files but activating software can be a pain sometimes.

Bear’s Den in New Salem is a The Trustees of Reservations property.  They are one of several land protection agencies we support and I have yet to visit each reservation but am working on it. It is a short albeit somewhat tricky hike but well worth it.

    I’m sorry that I missed this the first time around–I’m sure I would have remembered it. The sinuous track through the center of the pond adds a very nice accent. How meditational!

  2. The image is so brown.

    The smallest external drive I consider getting at this point is 8TB.

    • Brown can be a nice color.

      I’ve been replacing the older ones with 8’s and the most recent is 10. The new computer will have a 500GB SSD and a 4TB 2nd drive with 64GB of RAM. The SSD is my C drive where all the software resides and the D drive is for documents, backups for LR and image uploads etc. Most of what will be on the D drive will also be backed up on one of the externals. I don’t expect any bog downs. It’s being made for me by Puget Systems who made my current system. I’ve been very happy with them both for quality and service.

    There’s so much to like here: the warmth, the leaves, the sinuous line of foam connecting the two waterfalls. The shine on the wet rocks is nice, too, and the way even the pine needles cling to them. I know every landscape has something to offer, but every indication is that yours is a cut above the Texas coastal plain.

    • I am fortunate to live where I do with so much to see and experience as well as photograph. I can’t speak to what your coastal plain has to offer for landscapes although I’ve seen some great examples, but there is so much else you have that I envy, like all the reserved land and botanical gardens along with sunsets over the ocean.
      I am always tickled when I share something from the past that still holds up like this one. Thanks, Linda.

  4. Beautiful image Steve! Really like the “flow” drawing your eye from top to bottom!

  5. I don’t always care for pictures with the water as a white ribbon, but in this case, I love it, definitely makes you want to “go with the flow,” nice and smooth, and a memorable photo.

    Very pleasing image, Steve. The clarity of the foreground stones and the soft water with dots of autumn leaves is sweet.

  7. Excellent use of a classic composition. This is why classic compositions are classic. And, you are getting me to like brown — which is no small feat.

    Excellent composition. One shot? The DoF is amazing. I have a 5TB HD now. Nothing kept on the laptop at all. Storage just gets cheaper and cheaper.

    I love the warm tones in the image and the way the sinuous line of foam joins the two areas of moving water. It’s a very enjoyable image to look at. 🙂

    Beautiful image. A lot of nice patterns here and I like the limited color palette of it. Moving to a new computer is always a “fun” experience. I hope everything goes well!

    • Thanks, Todd. Happy that you see so much to like here. Yes, it is a challenge moving from old to new. I think dealing with W10 after all these years with W7 will be a bit of a challenge. I’ve some nice guidelines for preparation and most of my important files are externally saved so it should work out, I think.
