Cedar Creek,



Another unconventional creek shot. The tripod (and my feet) got somewhat wet taking this one.

    This picture makes me want to explore up the creek to see what other hidden treasures there are.
    Lovely photo - keep them coming.

    Indeed :) 20 seconds tends to really smooth out the water, even when it is rushing along like this :)

    and thus you see why I have so many of these photos eh ? ;-)

    Can anyone say "water"? Wow.

    Indeed :) This is the second creek spot I took you lot to. I had to wait two days after the big rains to get in here as there was so much water I couldn't get to this spot without getting quite wet.

    I remember that horizontal log. It would be a funny contrast to see it back then against this shot. We were all huddled around a tiny flow.

    On closer inspection, that last shot I put up is a closeup of the trickle which was flowing underneath the fallen tree.

    Seen in my recent comments. (?)

    Yep, I reckon that is the same spot, that and you're latest photo too.

    Very nice combination (I would have said "juxtaposition" but it sounds too arty-farty) of stillness & motion. Nice composition too, although I can't help but feel like my eye follows the creek flow down to, and out of, the bottom of the frame. I wonder what it would have looked like if you'd shot it from upstream (looking downstream) so that the eye follows the creek further into the frame rather than out of the frame...
  • David de Groot said:
    It's true, one does wander down the creek and out through the bottom of the frame. I have shot from above looking down, but it doesn't work as well as you don't see the white foamy bits from above as well as you do from below.
