Contrasting Falls

Another shot behind and beside Tinker Falls. I like the contrasts in this image. The diagonal running from upper right to lower left. The power of the falls on one side, the still rock on the other. The black of the wet rock ledge, the white of the falling water. The brown leaves of fall in one corner, the green leaves of a small shrub and some green moss in the other. Maybe too much analysis but for myself I am always looking to see what interests and why. Sometimes in the moment I cannot articulate to myself why I am drawn to take an image and it only later, upon reflection, that I can process the elements. This is why I have grown to trust my gut more and more when taking images.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely image. Plus, I enjoyed very much your analysis, as well as your comments on how, why, and when you analyze. Like you, I have learned that, for me, it works better to save some of the analysis for later after the moment is captured.

Thanks Anita. Sometimes it really is best to hit the shutter than to think. :-)
