Rush of Water

I promised a series yesterday since I just wasn’t in a position to post after an extremely long day at work. So I will deliver as promised. This series might be a bit abstract for some.

I was shooting at Great Falls and I just was fascinated by the light on the white water areas. So I took the opportunity to photograph these while I was doing other landscape work. I knew it would be a bit more abstract than normal but I think it works. I wanted a cohesive series to work with since a single image wasn’t going to convey much. With the series you get an idea of the power of water as it rushes through the world.

Editing wise these are straightforward edits. Nothing fancy was done other than add tone curves and local adjustments. Then some straight up sharpening to give things a bit of bite that would be missing.

    I really like the Rush of Water photos! The light on the white water as it rushes down and around is really a thing of beauty. Great Falls in Virginia has always been in my life, since I lived in the area. It is really a great park. For years, I gave no thought to the name of this strong body of water other than it was Great Falls. I decided to ask Google and was amazed to learn that this Great Falls is the Potomac River. Roughly 35,000 years ago, the Potomac River began carving out the Great Falls of the Potomac. The river cascades over a series of 20-foot (6.1 m) falls, falling a total of 76 feet (23 m) in elevation over a distance of less than 1 mile. These are photos I will enjoy for year. I also am more knowledgeable of the Potomac River, our Great Falls. I enjoyed.
