10.18.2020 Brookflow took a three month hiatus

Between the rain we got on Tuesday and followed by an all day event on Friday the water flowed in Dean Brook like it does in the springtime. It was great to have worldly sounds and thoughts drowned by the crash of rushing water over Murphy Falls.

    Steve, your second photo is positively magnificent.

    • Thanks, Gary. I made a bunch of images while there, most similar to many from previous visits. As I was about to leave I noticed this and it was my last frame. Just keep shooting. 🙂

        So many times come to mind when I thought I’d managed to capture what I’d hoped for, but yet something kept me from packing up and moving on, and it paid off with the best shot of the day. It’s really all about patience and perseverance, and–as you say–the dedication to keep shooting.

    It’s nice to hear the waterfall again, even for a day or two. Eventually, it will be constant, at least I hope so! Love the leaves in the foreground of the still photo – autumn!

    • I bet it sounded great out in your yard, Eliza. It doesn’t last long when it’s just once in a while. A friend posted an image of a small waterfall inside Quabbin. When I asked about its location to possibly visit she mentioned the flow had already ebbed. Guess I’ll add it to spot to visit next spring. Thanks!


  4. Two subjects I really miss in times of drought…flowing water and fall colors. Also, very nice depth-of-field.

    • Thanks, Bob. I was regretting not focus stacking but the background turned out okay. Our colors came fast this year because of the drought and a cold snap that was not expected. But they are lingering a bit and, sadly, the water is already reduced in its flow since the water table was so low.


  5. Woo hoo water, and even more so with fall foliage.


  6. Amazing work Steve really love the vertical image !!

    In the second photo, I especially like the way the lines of the flowing water continue the lines of the trees in the background. In fact, trees and water are merged by those lines — it’s a great effect.

    I love these types of photos, beautifully flowing water and some nice autumn color. Simple but effective. And the video is a nice addition, getting to hear the sounds of the water.

    • I’ve really missed those sounds this year, Todd. We are still in one despite the rain that produced this flow. I just hope we get enough snow or rain over the winter to fill the lakes, ponds, and reservoirs. Thanks!
