09.21.2022 Waterfall Wednesday

We had very little rain this past summer and many of the brooks here were actually rock landscapes.  But last week we had a little bit and Murphy Falls had this trickle of a cascade flowing for a more intimate shot.

There was a light mist falling which gave some nice saturation to the light.  One thing nice about the low flow was the appearance of the fissures. And that curved rock at the top is more visible and an interesting feature of the falls.

We had a downpour last night into this morning and more to come tomorrow so maybe, just maybe, this weekend will offer more water in motion imaging.

  2. This is the first waterfall you’ve shown in a long time. The ones here remain dry, even after the several inches of rain that came down a month ago.

    • It takes falling water to make a waterfall and until recently we haven’t had enough. In addition to water coming out of ponds and lakes feeding the brooks that give us the falls, groundwater including excess given back to the earth by tree and plant roots supply water to the various water bodies that fill brooks and streams and that table level has become quite low as well. Fortunately things are picking up here and I may have a few more shots to share. Hope you start to see more rainfall too.

    I rather like the balance between the water and the underlying rocks. Those strong, full flows are beautiful, but this scene seems equally pleasing.

    • The slow water movement allows us to see what lies beneath more easily and it is nice to see the patterns. Did you notice the cave painting-like human figure in the foreground? I agree on the low flow giving us a different look from what a lot of water would afford. Sometimes there is a lot more character in these conditions and, as you mention, a nice balance between liquid and solid.


  4. What a dynamic photo. Good job.

    Nice one. You’d think we’d get tired of waterfalls, but then another beauty comes along…
