08.26.2020-2 Waterfall Wednesday

I almost missed the day.  I haven’t shot a waterfall in ages.  The last was the cascade at Eliza’s (I haven’t forgot about the print…I am just very slow sometimes, Eliza) and now pretty much anything one might call a waterfall or cascade is a pile of rocks.  Hopefully that will change with the rain that is predicted tomorrow and then the remnants of Laura coming this Saturday. We are looking forward to that rain but hope that it does not come at too dear a cost to the folks along the Gulf Coast who will bear the brunt of it at its strongest.

Since I don’t have anything recent, here is one of my favorites from nine years ago at another of my favorite spots a few miles from home.

Hop Brook along the old Monadnock-Metacomet Trail now part of the New England Trail in Belchertown, MA.  We’ll see what the weekend brings.

Spoiler alert.  I’ve got a lovely stink bug for tomorrow.  🙂

  3. Who knows, maybe someday you’ll photograph a stinkbug with a waterfall behind it.

    Good to see another of your waterfalls, and it’s good to go back through the archives for buried treasure.

    This is a bit of an odd image, at least for me. It looks like the waterfall just stops at the bottom of the rocks. I finally decided the clarity of the water in the brook caused the optical illusion. It’s an interesting photo, for sure.

    • It is the clarity I’d say too. I eventually went down there and did some images of the falls from that level and when I visit the next time, whenever there is actual water falling, I’d take advantage of the clear water and rocks.

  6. Beautiful scene, nicely captured with just the right amount of blur in the water. I think you told me not long ago that you got the Canon Mark IV. Well me too … the price came down a bit momentarily and I snagged one. I’m liking it and the fact that there was not a big learning curve going from the III. How are you liking it?

    • Thanks, Denise.
      For the basics a camera is a camera, I think. Some of the special functions take a little learning…like I still try to zoom in on LiveView with the uppermost right button instead of the magnifying icon. I’m enjoying the touch screen. Of course, what’s most important are the files that are produced and I am very pleased with them.
      We’ve been getting a steady gentle rain all day so I am hoping there will now be water in the brooks rather than just rocks.
