04.14.2020 In the Middle of Buffam Brook

About a half mile or so from the previous Buffam Brook location I shared a few days ago is Buffam Falls. I’ll share a view of the falls later, but as I walked along the edge I liked the energy of the cascade surrounding the rocks. After the 12+ hours of fairly steady rain on top of the other rains we have received, the water levels are high and the flow powerful. Although I shot this from the edge, I did venture out in other spots and could feel the pull.

    Thanks to your link to Alister’s video, I’m coming around to the dark side too, and I’m really liking the new way of looking at things. Did you notice the cat’s face in the lower right quadrant of the downstream rock? It’s just about purrrfect.

  5. This is magnificent. It seems like some of your work is getting a little bit more on the abstract side well at the same time being realism. I donโ€™t know how you manage to combine both in one image, but it creates quite an effect!

    I can feel the power here. There’s something compelling about the simplicity of the composition and the focus on the fast flow of water. This could be one of my favorite water shots, maybe because it’s more dynamic, and as Michael said, it verges on the abstract. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Lynn. As I’ve said before, “I am just a simple guy, making simple photographs”. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Once again, it did take some experimenting to get the flow just right. I am glad we are shooting digitally now or these shots would either be hit or miss or cost a small fortune in film. I am pretty happy with it for the capture of the flow and its detailing.

    You’ve captured the detail of the water beautifully – I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else capture it quite that way. All those delicate edges where the water has sprayed up a little from the main body and the ‘lines’ in the main flow make it most appealing.
