A few weeks ago I decided to play with water pictures at Whitewater State Park. There's this dam that makes the swimming area at the beach with a neat set of rocks and a stone bridge. I took a bunch of different pictures to see what I could come up with.
This one I set the exposure much more slowly to get that interesting effect of moving water looking like a curtain of water coming over the rocks.
Moving in a little closer got the effect just about right.
"To trace the history of a river or a raindrop…is also to trace the history of the soul, the history of the mind descending and arising in the body. In both, we constantly seek and stumble upon divinity, which like feeding the lake, and the spring becoming a waterfall, feeds, spills, falls, and feeds itself all over again."
These two pictures are of the same spot but with the different shutter speeds. The amazing differences one can pick out from just a few shots and camera tricks makes it a never-ending journey into the wonders around us.
