05.02.2020-2 Scarboro Brook Cascade

Another brook I’ve been meaning to photograph.ย  I stopped there yesterday after shooting the marsh marigolds but the sun was coming through the trees and there were just a few cascades without hot spots.

I liked the texture of the darker water but getting that as I wanted didn’t allow for much to be captured in the white water but there is enough, I think. Next time I run into this I may experiment with blending.

    On my screen there is just enough detail in the white water to not leave too much to the imagination. Great motion here!

    This is a real action photograph – can really feel the movement of the water. Great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yesterday I found a new spot — in real woods. Needless to say, I’ve gained a new appreciation for ‘hot spots.’ Strong sunlight mixed with deep shadow was more challenging than I’d realized it would be.

    • Those hot spots can really throw a wrench into the works. If you were shooting flowers did you have a diffusion disk? They can be very helpful even in full sun.

        You mentioned those diffusion disks to me last year, and I bought one. It fits into its case very nicely, and it’s easy to get out. I even figured out how to get it folded and back in its case. Some day, I ought to try using the thing — although in the case of the two foot tall flower, I think I might have needed a photographer’s assistant, too.

        I did find the remnants of the flower I bought it for last year. I’ll be keeping an eye on it, and if it blooms again, I’ll need that disk, since it’s under a big ol’ tree with thick branches that come down to the ground, and I’ve already learned that flash isn’t the perfect solution.

        If I were a professional photographer, and more inclined toward artistic renderings like yours, I’d already have tried it. But honestly? My inner photographer’s more of a five-year-old kid running in saying “HEY! Lookie what I found!”

      • I am that way too when I come across something I’ve never seen before. I don’t always remember to try different compositions and just make a nice portrait when more macro shots could be nice too. More than once I have looked at the files in Lightroom and gone “DOH!”


  4. Nice Steve! Great image!
