05.01.2022 Splish Splash Sunday

Those two words show up here on the blog every once in a while.  I thought about this being a Silent Sunday post but the title and the image were too dissimilar I would think.  On the other hand, irony is always a fun concept.  I could have saved it for a Turbulent Tuesday but…

Buffam Brook just below the waterfall.

There’s a lot going on here but simplifying it didn’t seem simple at all so I am standing pat. As you might imagine, this was anything but silent and I should have made an accompanying video. I considered black and white but like the bit of color and the upper left rock looks a little like cinder.

  1. I took all the color out of this picture just to see. I still prefer what the shades of brown add to the black and gray.

    • Thanks, Alessandra. Water in motion is one of my favorite subjects and I spend a lot of time at it. Our brooks generally run very low in the summer so now is the time to capture them.

    Not that I’ve ever seen a shrunken head in real life, and not that I’d ever want to see one, but that boulder at the upper right certainly suggests human features: two eyes, a nose, and so on. Here’s a title for you: “The Plight of the Careless Photographer.” I’m glad to remember that you take reasonable precautions out there on the rocks!

    • I think I prefer a chunk of cinder to a shrunken head but I do see that also although, like you, I’ve never seen one in person. I am definitely less daring than I have been in the past. Several years ago I fell on my back in the snow while wearing my camera bag. I was like an upside down turtle trying to get back up.
