I have made quite a number of photographs from various spots along Dean Brook in Shutesbury.  One of them, as you may recall, is Murphy Falls. But there are many other cascades that interest me for their flow patterns and, of course, the same one can have many looks depending on the current current flowing through. This one is right by the side of the road and I literally can place my tripod right outside the hatch of my SUV to make this shot.

I’ve shot this a few times…it’s so easy…but have yet to capture one that I am entirely pleased with. I can’t get quite high enough to eliminate the distractions at the top of the frame.  Aside from the I do like this image for the capture of splashing, flow, and the light on the rocks.  I’ll try a few more times.

So much for this originally intended to be Wordless Wednesday.

    It is perfectly pleasing to me, the non-photographer. The light on the rocks is lovely.

    Going with the flow… 🙂
    These past 2 rainstorms have made the waterfalls very active!

    The color of the flow on the left and the color of the rocks on the right are almost perfectly matched. It’s almost as though the flow of the white water has been busy dissolving rock, resulting in the darker flow on the left. Now, that would be time lapse!

    • With all the oaks and hemlocks in this location, there are tannins coloring the water. That flow on the left received some dodging to balance the light on the water which also brought out a bit more color as you observed.

    The flow patterns are lovely. I like returning to the same cascades as well – especially now that I’ve found Shaker Glen.
