It’s a rainy day here in WMass.  Mostly a drizzle but at one point earlier the heavens gushed forth so hard it sounded like a herd of oxen on the roof.  Not much snow this winter so little if any spring melt around here but the occasional rain is keeping the brooks flowing.

More water flowing its way to Boston in Quabbin Reservoir…Atherton Brook.

    Nicely composed, Steve. Our waterfall was roaring last night after the deluge. I forget how loud it is after the frozen quiet of winter!

    First, an apology for taking so long to wander over to your absolutely lovely website.
    Second, thanks to Linda at https://shoreacres.wordpress.com where I have enjoyed your insight to her posts and to you for visiting our own little corner of nature.
    Third, what a wonderful photograph to greet us this morning!

    I absolutely love the long exposure and monochrome effect! We don’t have too many waterfalls and boulders here in central Florida, so this view is, for me, quite stunning.

    Now for more coffee as I peruse your gallery and older posts.

    Have a great week.

    • No apology needed, of course, Wally. I am very happy you came by and followed the blog. Linda is also the source for my visits to yours. She spoke quite highly of you so I had to see for myself. She was spot on.

      Of course, you have so much there that is absent here so I will enjoy learning about Florida through your posts. I am not much for travel so a lot of what I learn about other places is vicarious pleasure.

      Thanks for scrolling through my posts. I hope you found some of the images to be enjoyable.


  6. Very nice. The flow captured is very impressive. 👍

    I’m accustomed to seeing horizontal layers in your photos, but the strongly vertical feel of this one is especially appealing. I suspect the distance between each level isn’t as great as it seems in the photo, but whatever the distance, it adds to the sense of flow. And, yes, even I agree that monochrome is perfect for this view!

    • Well, there wasn’t much color so even if I had not converted the file it would have had a monochrome appearance. It sort of made the decision for me. And, yes, the distance is made larger by the use of an ultra wide lens, 16-35, at its widest.

    I love the different effects on the water – the more channeled flows of water and then the fluffier (can’t think of a better word) look as it lands on the level below. A nice contrast. 🙂

  9. Very nice Steve! I especially like the water “explosion” at the bottom of the image!

  10. Excellent composition and B&W conversion! I love the movement here taking my eye back and forth and zigzagging through the image. 🙂

    • Thanks, Denise! While I like waterfalls, I do enjoy finding cascades with multiple paths or different landing spots to have variety of texture and draw the eye through the image.. This collection of cascades is just a little bit below the waterfall I posted with the ET swirl (or some saw a frog) in the foreground. It’s a great brook full of features.


  11. I join the crowd of admirers, Steve. This image is absolutely stunning. If it’s not too complicated for you to explain, how were you able to show some of waterfall in sharp focus and other parts with the silky, soft effect, especially since those areas occupy different levels of depth?
