Round and round where it goes nobody knows lines

Going through lines.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Man-made

You might not think of Florida when you think of waterfalls. In fact I only know of one waterfall in the state’s panhandle. Yet you will find many waterfalls in various areas of the larger cities, manmade waterfalls. This example is in SeaWorld Orlando.

Photography 101: Moment

This moment will never pass again, these small water droplets will be in this place and time only for this instant. The photo on the left shot with a medium f-stop & shutter speed, the right a larger f-stop & faster shutter speed.

Photography 101: Water

Water is one of my favorite things to photograph. Ok, it’s one of my favorite things in all my world – to live near, to visit/vacation, to chill out, to play. Even so, I do have a healthy fear of this wondrous beauty. Water is the most beautiful of the earth’s features but it’s also the most destructive and while we can’t survive without it water can also take our life. Of all the forms water it is falling water that intrigues me the most and captures all of my senses. I need a bumper sticker that warns that “I break for waterfalls” because I’ve been known to do that – often.

These photos depict Big Clifty Falls in landscape and portrait orientations. While the portrait highlights the length of the falls, one of the tallest in Indiana, I prefer the bedrock which leads into the falls in the landscape view. You might think the normal orientation for waterfalls would be portrait but I prefer the landscape view including the surrounding landscape to set off the beauty of the waterfall.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

This descent to Little Clifty Falls is one of my favorite places in the park. Years ago there were no stairs and no boardwalk across the top of the falls. You just took your chances walking down to the river then carefully cross the falls.

Sunday Nature Quote: Mystery of Nature

Talk of mysteries! — Think of our life in nature, — daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it, — rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! The solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we? where are we?
