10.19.2020 Splish, splash, I avoided taking a bath.

In the brook, of course.  No B.O. Plenty am I.  Despite the strong flow, the water is rarely more than ankle deep over the rock bed of the brook until you go farther downstream.

I’ve made many attempts to capture the frozen in time motion of this little waterfall.  I will continue to do so but am pretty happy with this frame.

I had considered this for a Monochrome Monday post but always enjoy the tannic tint in the water here.  As you heard in the video yesterday, this is loud and one can get lost for a few moments just standing, or sitting, by this strong cascade.

And for those of you not old enough to remember the title’s reference

    Rub, dub, you were sneakin’ through the scrub,
    Thinkin’ you could balance all right;
    Bang, bing, you blew the whole thing,
    Slippery stones are a fright!

    I like the tint to the water – it brings an extra feeling of place that helps to bring the image alive. (Reminds me of some Scottish streams that have water tinted by the peat. Good memories. 🙂 ) Glad you avoided taking a bath – your camera wouldn’t have liked it!

  4. Tannic tint’s the way to go. You could’ve waited till tomorrow to post this as Tannic Tuesday.

  5. Very successful photo, love it.
    I know the title song, because a few years ago I got my dad a DVD of “Beyond the Sea,” with Kevin Spacey, but it was Darin’s version of “Mack the Knife” that has always caught my ear.

    I’m glad you didn’t go monochrome. It’s a ti-tannic photo as it is!
