03.21.2020 Amethyst Brook Cascade with Deflection

Another from a nice day at the brook.  This could easily have been titled with chaos as the others but the change of direction in the flow caused by the rock  was what really got my attention.

As you might guess, it took a fair amount of experimentation with the exposure time to get something that looked somewhat organized. 0.6 secs at ISO 400, f/8 ended up being the right combination.  70-200 + circular polarizer.

I don’t usually mention clicking the image but if you do it gets a bit larger and the flow shows beter.

  1. The change in direction makes for a right (in both senses) angle at which to photograph the waterfall, and it makes this view distinctive.

  2. Wow! Just the side of pure abstract. Wall material. Yes, the change in direction adds dynamism and drama. Extremely engaging.

    I’m not certain how I could have gone this long without thinking of cotton candy when I see one of these photos, but I’m thinking of it now. That spray running horizontally after the bend looks exactly like really good cotton candy being made in a proper machine.

    • It’s been years since I’ve had cotton candy but your mention of it has created the desire to have some again. Of course now is not the time and even if it was I don’t know where to go for it other than buying a machine that makes it and I can tell you that it would be frowned upon in this household. I’ll always see that now while working on these images.
