11.23.2021 And for something a little more lively

After shooting the abstract in the pond, I drove down Moosehorn Road and my peripheral vision, one of the few things age has not affected, noticed a bright spot between the trees about 100 feet into the woods. This wasn’t it.  But while looking at that cascade I noticed this one behind me.  Just a nice little fall of water with some autumn oak leaves.

After two posts of dead things I thought some bright water and leaves was called for.

  1. At the end you mentioned dead things. That got me thinking that we don’t normally apply the word “dead” to a waterfall that has dried up.


  2. Great image Steve! Very nice image of the “flowing” water!

  3. I’m sure the water isn’t bath-temperature but the oak leaves really contribute some warmth to the scene, and the splashing has a great liveliness.

    Nice composition, Steve. I find these small falls often stop me more often than not. Their music is always particularly sweet.

    I’m also drawn much more to the small wonders than to the roaring torrents. Cool find.

    What a lovely mix of water and leaves – I particularly like the warm tones in the image.

    My favorite detail is the single leaf that’s nearly submerged at the bottom of the falls. It looks as though your shutter caught its stem in two barely separated locations, and it also looks as though the single leaf above it and to the left might be thinking of taking the plunge too.

    • I made several exposures with the leaf in varying positions due to the flow. This was the most pleasing and I am glad that you like it as well. This exposure was 1.3 seconds so there is a little bit of motion as you noted.That other leaf might have been giving it some thought but never left its elevated position while I was there. As with other shots I’ve shared, it is amazing that they can stay seemingly glued to the spot with all that water rushing over them.
