03.08.2021 An Icicle with Character-2

There were two icicles that i enjoyed finding at the top of the little waterfall I visited on Saturday. This one is a bit more complicated to compose and I went about it from two different angles.  In both cases … Continue reading

02.20.2021 Murphy! Is that you?

Yesterday as I was shooting ice, snow and water at Dean Brook’s Murphy Falls (my name for it after my late beagle and not official) I noticed this abstract.  What do you think?  Did he drop in to visit me?  … Continue reading

12.22.2020 Murphy Falls in WInter

This little waterfall in Dean Brook is almost always reliable for a good image. There wasn’t quite as much ice as I expected but enough so I could include some as an interesting foreground element. Mary Beth noticed that my … Continue reading

10.19.2020 Splish, splash, I avoided taking a bath.

In the brook, of course.  No B.O. Plenty am I.  Despite the strong flow, the water is rarely more than ankle deep over the rock bed of the brook until you go farther downstream. I’ve made many attempts to capture … Continue reading

10.18.2020 Brookflow took a three month hiatus

Between the rain we got on Tuesday and followed by an all day event on Friday the water flowed in Dean Brook like it does in the springtime. It was great to have worldly sounds and thoughts drowned by the … Continue reading

More hangers over a little downstream from the pendants I shared earlier. Murphy Falls again but a little different this time around.  Lots of water and icicles hanging around from the bank.

12.23.2019 Monochrome Monday Side Cascade Intimate

Similar to yet different than the image from this shoot that I posted last Friday.  This is in the lower right of yesterdays composition and is another delicate ice formation that caught my eye even before the cascade. I would … Continue reading

12.20.2019-2 8° Waterfall Intimate

More textural contrast. At first it didn’t feel very cold.  The thermometer said 8° but there was no breeze and it actually felt comfortable…for a while.  Eventually fingers became numb, boots said “we’re leaking” and my pant legs wicked water … Continue reading

12.08.2019 Once more with Feeling

I know I’ve shared many images of Murphy Falls aka one of the Dean Brook Cascades.  Each time it’s a little different, either the conditions or my interpretation. It wasn’t that cold although it looks so.  Comparatively balmy, 24°F/-04.5°C compared … Continue reading

07.31.2019 Dean Brook Dribble

A bit of an exaggeration, but the brooks around here are all now mostly rocks with just a slow flow of shallow water. The forecast keeps predicting heavy downpours from passing thunder storms but so far we haven’t seen it.  … Continue reading
