After a few good days of rain, water flows into the Elkhorn from the eastern hills. The blissfully sedate creek swells up beyond all reason. Brown water surges over the little Great Crossing falls, splashing down into white swirls that give off tall sprays. When the water is high, danger and mystery loom around the Elkhorn—a small, good thing.
(Prints of some images are available here.)
I like how the purple leaves hang gently over the falls, almost ghostly.
How close did you take the lens to this capture?
It is beautiful!
Thanks for the comment! I used a 50mm lens, and I was about 8 feet away from the water.
Beautifully taken as you were just at the edge!
What a great image. Please tell me you used a tripod. If you hand is that steady, well–is that even possible?
I used a tripod! Thanks for commenting.
I am not up-to-date with technology – but what a wonderful enhancement it must be to a creative photographer like you.
Thank you for liking my Creepy photo
I appreciate the comment. Thanks.
To capture that unceasing flow and the result below…Wonderful
The power of water keeps us coming back to the lakes and the beaches because as it washes in and out it seems to cleanse the soul and bring a smile. 🙂
Ah, yes. I agree exactly.
Beautiful and colorful! Thanks for the “summery” images. Good eye and cool lens! 🙂
I love the angles you got these at.
Thanks. I like looking for interesting angles.
My favorite colors. So soft and beautiful
Thanks. I’m always amazed at how water looks soft even when it’s rushing and swirling.
