Growing up I always played in the creek. If I wasn’t in the house and you couldn’t see me in the yard, you could count on me being in the creek. I would build small dams and play with stones in the water. I loved how the water flowed. During storms when the creeks would fill it was fascinating to see the power of water. Even today I am amazed at how quickly moving water can transform an area.
I guess that is why I gravitate toward photographing water. A quick look through any of my albums will show a majority of images with water as a component. I love the reflections it can produce. I am intrigued by the patterns and apparent randomness of the flow. Being able to slow down the shutter on the camera and capture an image of water that is truly the some of its parts is the best way to end a hectic work week.
Last evening after work I headed to the West Canada Creek just below Trenton Falls. It is an accessible area with a lot of character to the water. I spent an hour climbing over the rocks capturing the nuances of the creek. It was a great way to end the day.
