03.20.2020 Amethyst Brook Waterfall

Sometimes a low flow allows us to see a waterfall in a different way than when it is roaring. When there is a lot of water, this feature is swallowed by a wider deluge going over the entire width of the rocks.  I’ve shot this composition or similar before but it’s a nice horsetail and I always take advantage when I can.

We’ve had rain off and on yesterday and will again today, but it’s light and more of a mist so not much change I wouldn’t expect.

  1. It’s good that you got everything in focus from front to back. The frontmost rock adds lichen, which I don’t associate with waterfall pictures.

    Lovely – and it reminds me of the rivers in Scotland, which are very different to the rivers here. (The only stone you see around here is flint.)

    A sweet spot for sure. I’m also likin’ not only the foreground-rock adornment, but also the froth trail leading from it and the vegetation at the top and top-right.

    • That froth trail was constantly changing and I picked the one I thought fit the better. The fact that I have always, to this point anyway, had the place to myself does indeed make it a sweet spot not only for photography but as a place to hang out. Thanks, Gary.

    It is fascinating how changing water levels alter scenes. And this photo is a great reminder to revisit locations and see how they change over time. Nice work.

    • And the speed of flow too. I’ve been asked often what’s the best exposure to use and there is no right answer. It’s even harder to choose when you are in a shaded woods with dim lighting. Thanks, Todd.

    And here I was thinking you just had babbling brooks and cascades. Nice little waterfall!
